      These are an excellent sugar cookie. However, your yield amount is way off. I got 64 very large cookies. I wondered when I saw the 4 plus cups of flour. I will certainly make these again.

      These sugar cookies are very, very, good! They are soft, light, and rich. I also flattened the cookie with a glass dipped in sugar and cinnamon. Yum, yum!

      I made these last night and added the nutmeg as another reviewer suggested. My hubby threw his in the trash after one bite. I like nutmeg in a lot of things, but these cookies are NOT one of them. Would have probably been good without that addition. I should have known better. Otherwise, were flaky, melt in your mouth and uniform in shape and color. Made them for a neighbor's 1st grade son to take to his teacher. I hope she doesn't flunk him. ;(
