IMO - these cookies have perfect sugar cookie flavor, not too sweet and not too plain. They are light vs. being dense. I always undercook my cookies, since I always seem to burn them LOL! I baked them for about 6.5 minutes. PERFECT golden brown bottoms :) Thanks for posting this recipe!!! :)

I made these twice now and they are a hit but not as soft as I would like them to be.

Fantastic! They don't have the funny taste that some sugar cookies and snickerdoodles do.

These are the best sugar cookies EVER!! This is a Betty Crocker recipe from a cookbook printed in the 60's or 70's. It's the book I grew up with. A great frosting for these cookies is from the same book. The recipe follows: 1/3 cup soft butter 3 cups confectioners sugar 1 1/2 tsp vanilla 2-3 Tbsp milk Cream butter and sugar with liquids. It dries thick like a cake frosting, but it goes well with this cookie!! Enjoy

These cookies had a very nice flavor to them. We enjoyed them very much. The only thing that sorta disapointed me was that they weren't as soft as I was hoping. They definately weren't HARD, but they did have a bit of a crunch after cooling off. I was hoping they would remain chewy...Still very satisfying though, and I liked the idea of powdered sugar. All in all a very good sugar cookie recipe. Thanks S1'sGrandma!!! Hope you like the picture!

These cookies are a nice variation of the traditional cookie - however the almond extract produces a very distunctive and different taste if you were expecting a textbook 'sugar cookie' recipe. I might add something in the description to preface the end result a bit.

The only recipe I use! As they are soft, they make nice thicker cookies, just over 1/4 inch thick. Cooking time is the same but watch closely.

These cookies are light and tender. I used powdered sugar on my rolling pin and surface to help keep them that way. Since I was looking for a cookie that wasn't too sweet, just used a light dusting of sugar and skipped the frosting.

These are great cookies. It's the same recipe that's in a cookbook my mom passed down to me. We have them every Christmas with icing. They are great without icing too. Not as sweet. I made a batch of these tonight for my boyfriend. I think he'll love them.
