NotesThis is a great basic cookie dough to use when you want to make lots a cookies for a bake sale, or for gift baskets at the holidays. This one dough can be used to make Almond Spice Drops, Zested Lemon Cookies, Double Chocolate Cookies, and Nut Tassies (see my other recipes). As is, it's great for cutting and dipping in chocolate or glazing with lemon glaze.
