    I like Alton Brown's sugar cookie recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/al...

    Also, stronger in flavor of course, but Gingerbread cookies are great for cookie cutters. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipe...

      Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, I can't make it any better myself, so that's what I use.

        I have used this No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe many times with great success.
