An excellent cookie and so tender. I thought we'd have to refrigerate the dough before forming into balls but it worked out ok without chilling. We used a small meatball (1-inch size) scoop and made about 5 dozen cookies.

Excellent cookies, I have but one 3'X 4' counter to work at; not having to roll these out was great and they were and I say were cause they are all gone...Fantastic

These are awesome. Very light and fluffy. I like my sugar cookies with lemon flavor, so I left out the vanilla and added the juice and grated rind of one lemon. Truly great cookies.
