How to Make It
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add 1 cup sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl. Gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well. Cover and chill.
Divide dough in half, keeping one half chilled until ready to use. Roll to 1/8-inch thickness on a well-floured surface; cut with assorted floured cookie cutters.
Place 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with colored sugar. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
