Kneaders' Sugar Cookies

I found this recipe on ABC 4 in Utah after making the Best Bites Sugar Cookies (they were okay). I love Kneaders and I miss their sugar cookies. Lucky for me they actually posted their own recipe on Good Things Utah. So I adapted it to a normal batch of cookies. Enjoy:

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk

4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp lemon flavor
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of nutmeg (1/8 tsp)
1/2 Tbl honey

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, then milk. Scrape down sides of bowl often.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Dough will be soft and sticky.
  4. Place dough on well-floured surface.
  5. Knead in enough flour to make dough workable. Dough will be soft so it's best to knead with a rolling motion. (Prevents cracks on tops of cookies.)
  6. Gently roll out to 3/8 inch thick.
  7. Cut into shapes and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake at 325 for 10 - 12 minutes or until edges barely start to change colors. Makes 2 dozen.

I do not love the Kneaders frosting. But pair these bad boys with The Best Bites frosting (with hint of lemon) and you'll find heaven.
