How do I make thick and chewy cut-out sugar cookies?

Stacy asks: I like my cut-out sugar cookies thick and chewy. What kind of recipe should I use?

BakingSOS says: My experience has been that you can make any sugar cookie dough thick and chewy by the way you prepare & bake it. For thicker cookies, simply roll your dough about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. For chewier cookies, bake them for a very short time: about 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees until they are barely brown around the edges. It also helps to bake cut-out cookies on parchment-lined cookie sheets so they don’t spread or stick to the pan.

Note: If you like your cookies thick, it is a good idea to double your sugar cookie recipe so that you have plenty of dough to work with when rolling it thicker. Otherwise, your recipe will only make a few cookies.
