    Classic Sugar Cookies

    POINTS? Value: 1
    Servings: 45
    Preparation Time: 15 min
    Cooking Time: 12 min
    Level of Difficulty: Moderate
    Complete your holiday gathering with these classic cookies. Vary the
    cookie cutters and colored sugars to create an endless variety of
    shapes and designs.

    Ingredients
    3 cup all-purpose flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup Neufchatel cheese
    1 cup sugar, granulated
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 large egg(s)
    1/2 cup fat-free skim milk
    1 tsp all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup sugar, colored (for decorating)
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350?F.

    Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and nutmeg in a medium
    bowl; set aside.

    Place butter and cheese in a large bowl; cream using an electric
    mixer. Add sugar and beat until batter is pale yellow; beat in
    vanilla extract and egg.

    Add about 1/3 of flour mixture and 1/3 of milk to cheese mixture; mix
    batter on low speed until just combined. Repeat with remaining flour
    and cheese mixtures.

    Shape dough into a ball and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Using
    your palms, press down on plastic wrap to flatten dough into a
    hamburger shape; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 days.

    Sprinkle a teaspoon of flour on a flat work surface. Pull off about
    1/3 of dough and, using a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/8-inch
    thickness. Using a 3-inch circular cookie cutter, cut cookies out of
    dough and place on ungreased baking sheets. Roll up dough scraps and
    add back to dough ball. Pull off another 1/3 of dough and repeat
    process until all dough is used ? recipe will make approximately 45
    cookies.

    Sprinkle cookies with colored sugar and bake until edges just start
    to turn golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks
    and cook completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.
    Notes
    Make these cookies any shape you want. You can sprinkle them with
    colored sugar as we've done here or make colored icing and paint on
    your own designs (may affect POINTS values). To ice the cookies, bake
    them without the colored sugar topping. While they are cooling,
    combine 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    and 1 to 3 teaspoons of hot water in a small bowl. Divide icing in
    half and add drops of different food coloring to each half; paint
    designs on cookies using small painting or basting brushes.
