That sounds good!

I rarely do cookies. I never do ones that have to but cut out. Drops all the way for me, but I have dropped really thick doughs then pressed flat with a fork which works pretty good.

One of the best cookies I make is sugar cookies that I substitute Jack Daniels for the water/liquids in the recipe. I have used Malibu rum, Grand Mairner and others but the Jack is the best I think. I use Jack a lot instead of or with vanilla.

<-- may not bake many cookies but sure loves cookie dough (which is why I don't do cookies!)

I love Christmas cutout cookies.

You have to do it when you have kids.
