    Does anybody have the recipe for Santa Land Cutouts or something like that? I think that is what they are called. They are meant to be rolled out and then decorated for Christmas. They are a crisp cookie that is not real sweet and they go great with tea. My aunt used to make them, but she is now gone and I can't find my own recipe. Thanks.

    I've never heard of them, but they sound good! I know about Santa's Whiskers, but they aren't rolled cut outs. If you find this recipe, I'd like to try it too. Have you ever tried Wilton's roll out cookie recipe? Its very good, and you don't need to chill the dough. I love making cut out cookies, and I've got hundreds of cutters too! Good luck.

    Do you mean a standard sugar cookie? They are not overly sweet.

    No. They are not a standard sugar cookie. As I remember they had rolled oats and lemon zest in them but I could be wrong about the zest. They do not look or taste like an oatmeal cookie though.

    maybe this will help.. (you could add lemon zest to any of them.. )

    Chewy Oatmeal Decorating Cookies


    1 cup (2 sticks, 8 ounces) unsalted butter
    3/4 cup (5 5/8 ounces) packed light or dark brown sugar
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    2 cups (8 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) whole wheat flour, traditional or white wheat
    1 cup (3 1/2 ounces) old-fashioned rolled oats
    cinnamon sugar (optional)

    To prepare the dough: In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter and sugar, then add the egg, vanilla, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger, beating until smooth. Beat in the flours and oats; the mixture may look dry at first, but don’t worry, it’ll come together. Divide the dough into two pieces, wrap each piece in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.

    To shape the cookies: Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll it into a circle about 14" in diameter. Use your favorite cutters to cut out cookies, re-rolling and cutting the scraps. Place the cutout cookies on lightly greased or parchment-lined cookie sheets; set them fairly close together, as they don’t spread.

    To bake the cookies: Bake the cookies for about 9 to 10 minutes: the shorter amount of time will make softer cookies, the longer amount of time, crisper cookies. Remove the cookies from the oven, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar, if desired, and transfer to a rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough. Decorate as desired.
    Yield: 6 1/2 dozen 2 ½" cookies.

    Bakers’ tip: When rolling dough for cutout cookies, roll from the center outwards, giving the dough a quarter-turn on the floured surface with each stroke of the pin. This will produce a more tender cookie than rolling back and forth over the dough.
