Do you know a good sugar cookie recipe for making Christmas cookies?

Question by playdoh1986: Do you know a good sugar cookie recipe for making Christmas cookies?
Hi everybody.
Alright, every year my little brother and I make christmas cookies. You know, sugar cookies, cookie cutters, then decorate them.
My question is: Does anybody have a good sugar cookie recipe for using cookie cutters?
Every year the recipes taste nice, but the dough always turns out too crumbly or too doughy. So any tips on avoiding this, or an awesome recipe is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

    your existing recipe is okay. just under cook them for 3-5 minute when you are baking them so that the cookies will not dry out.. and make sure that you mix the butter well to avoid lumps of flour in the cookies.Try searching yeolesweets on the web.
    They have a lot of cookie choices/variations for inspiration

    Ginger Sugar Cookies

    Ingredients
    Makes 24 heart-shaped cookies
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    Pinch of salt
    2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
    6 tablespoons granulated sugar
    2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
    1 large egg yolk
    Sanding sugar, for sprinkling

    Directions
    Sift flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl. Cream butter and sugars with a mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat in ginger, then yolk.
    Reduce speed to low, and add flour mixture gradually, beating until just combined. Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 1 hour (or up to 2 days).
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Turn out dough onto lightly floured parchment. Roll out until 1/4 inch thick, and cut out cookies using a 1 3/4-inch heart-shaped cutter. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush each cookie with a damp pastry brush, then sprinkle with sanding sugar. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
    Bake until cookies are set and light gold around edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks, and let cool. Cookies will keep, covered, for up to 3 days.
