I've tried a few and are just not happy with the end product, they just don't keep the cutter shape while cooking.
Would love some recipe suggestions

I made some vanilla shortbread the other night, and it is the first cookie recipe that I have successfully used a cookie cutter for (and they were simple and so yummy).
Although now I can't find the recipe (I had googled it). I just used sugar, butter, flour and vanilla bean paste all mixed together, rolled out and cut and dusted with sugar before put in the oven. (I think it was 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, tspn vanilla paste and 250 grams butter and cooked for 12 minutes at 175.

The best cookie cutter recipe - I promise. Also included is the icing that hardens!
It has a fantastic rating from people who have used the recipe.

This one is super at holding shape, and since it has little butter and no eggs it keeps for yonks once baked. Also surprisingly healthy for a biscuit recipe. We've tweaked it and upped the spice level, so if you don't want lots of spice maybe back it off a bit.
