    Lesley Anne's Note:

    This is the best sugar cookie recipe that I have found. The dough is the best by far when it comes to cutting out shapes.

      I have to say, these were very good cookies. The dough was much easier to use than any other I've tried. As far as the qty of cookies, I got much more than 5. Maybe the dough wasn't rolled thin enough? I've seen the recipe posted on the Food Network before, as well. I give it a 5!

      I found these cookies the worst ever.I followed the directions exactly. The dough came out crumbly, I even chilled It for longer than an hour. The dough that formed was good for 5 cookies. It was a waste of time and energy and I was not crazy about the taste.
