Sugar Cookies

Here is the cute pumpkin
So Last night was my adventure with sugar cookies. My co-worker who is amazing in the kitchen gave me her recipe. Unfortuenately when I first got it the margerine and sugar amounts were missing. I think i put a little too much margerine in them and rolled them too thin. They turned out extremely tasty, but the first two batches were a bit crisp and the last one was too soft and falling apart. Sigh. Luckily i still have half a bowl of dough in the refrigerator which i'm going to add cinnamon and nutmeg too and cook the rest tomorrow. The cookie cutter shapes are really cute. I had a pumpkin, ghost, and cat cookie cutters to play with. For the guys I frosted theirs with chocolate frosting and added sprinkles.
Here is the recipe for those who want it.
