I always thought that "cut-out" cookies were difficult so I never even attempted them. But, when I found this recipe and saw the beautiful cookies that resulted from it, I bit my lip and decided to give it a go. Of all the cookies I made that year, 1996, these were every person's favourite cookie! Who knew?! Since then, I've made these throughout the years and also, throughout the year, using different cutters for the various occasions in life. Use either a glaze, Royal Icing, or shake coloured sugars on top to decorate your cookies. I prefer to use lemon oil in these but at other times I will add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, almond or rosewater to change the flavour. Also, there are times that I will add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, cardamom or ground lavender to these cookies. They adapt very easily to your own preferences.
