  1. Preheat oven to 350º. In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugars until well blended. In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground nutmeg. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the butter mixture. Alternately add the dry ingredients and the water to the butter mixture and mix until well blended. 

  2. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before rolling dough. Roll dough about 1/8-inch thick and cut with a variety of cookie cutters. Place ½ inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on rack before decorating. Makes 8 to 9 dozen cookies depending on the size of the cookie cutters. 

  3. Cookies can be decorated with colored sugar or decorator’s icing.
