I’m going to try these ones tonight or tomorrow. They got awesome reviews on Allrecipes and I also found other sites linking to them. Just remember that sugar cookie dough needs to be refrigerated overnight, so start the process a day early.

ETA: The cutters you have sound great and like fun shapes to decorate! I find the more complicated ones don’t look like what they are (bells, Santa, etc) and are hard to decorate. If you were going to add, maybe a stocking, reindeer or candy cane would be good ones too. I find the reindeers antlers break off easily though, so they aren’t my favourites 😉  Sounds like you guys are going to have a really fun afternoon!

My moms recipe:

3/4 cup butter or margarine

2/3 cup white granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp (5ml) vanilla

1 3/4 cup flour

Beat butter & sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Gradually mix in flour. Do not over beat.

Roll out on floured surface to 1/8 inches thick, cut and bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

*If the dough is too soft to be workable chill for 30mins-1hour.

**I find in a hotter oven (like gas) you only need to bake 10-12 minutes.
