INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
3 tablespoons water
6 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
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.

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.

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