This dough is the perfect starting place for almost endless creative cookie possibilities. One idea: Cut it into the shape of letters to make festive sayings, then, before putting the cookies on the baking sheets, sprinkle with colored sugars and poke a hole through each cookie with a drinking straw. That way, you can lace some ribbon through the cookies and hang them up when they're all done!
Yield: 4 to 6 dozen cookies
* It's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe. The size of the cookie cutters you use will determine the yield. (That's why there's such a wide range given on the yield!)
