Serious Cookies: All-Purpose Cutout Cookies
On its own, this cookie recipe isn't going to win any awards for excitement--any flourish is up to the baker. A high cornstarch content means the dough is dry, very rollable and cuts clean, providing a solid foundation for any ornamental shapes, glazes and sparklies you can imagine.
These all-purpose cutout cookies from The King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion dry very hard, making them ideal for use as hanging decorations.
