There is a recipe in T&T, but I've never made it so not sure what type it makes.

I normally use this recipe because it makes a tender soft cookie if you don't over bake it, but it's not as light as those grocery store type iced sugar cookies if that is what you are looking for. This recipe came with some clay molds I have.

Brown Bag Cookie Art, Sugar Cookies

1/2c softened butter
3/4c sugar
1 “medium” or “large” egg (not extra large
or jumbo)
1T milk or cream
2c flour
1/4t salt
1/4t nutmeg (or cinnamon)

Thoroughly cream butter by hand. Add sugar
and mix till fluffy. Beat in the egg and
then the milk. In a separate bowl mix
together all dry ingredients. Stir them into
the butter. Knead the dough for just a
minute. Chill the dough, then form the
cookies as directed (in the molds, and then
removed to a cookie sheet) and bake at 350ºF
for 10-12 minutes or until edges brown.
Yield: 5-8 large cookies depending on size of

(don't let edges get brown, these molds are typically quite large so I'd check around the 7-8 minute mark for doneness)
