How to Keep Cut-Out Cookies from Spreading

runnermom | Sep 7, 2011 04:06 PM

I'm trying to bake a sugar cookie that keeps its cut-out shape and doesn't spread. All the recipes I've tried call for all butter, not shortening. My sister who is a pastry chef suggested that I use half butter, half shortening to prevent spreading. I live at high altitude which may affect how my cookies turn out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
