    Charmie777's Note:

    I know there are a ton of sugar cookie recipes here, but I couldn't find this one, and it's my favorite! It makes a nice thick and soft sugar cookie, that's perfect for all the holidays. Frost these with your favorite vanilla frosting (I often just used the store-bought stuff...shhhhh!). Cooking time includes chilling time. I'm guessing on the amount, but I'll adjust when I make these soon!

      Agreed w/everyone else that the temp was too high. I even baked mine at 350 and they turned out great (my oven tends to get really hot). I also did put the remaining dough in the fridge in between batches b/c as someone else posted, the dough got soft really quick. The cookies themselves came out BIG, SOFT, DELICIOUS...PERFECT!

      Charmie, this is my new, go-to sugar cookie recipe! I've made these three times with rave reviews! I made exactly as directed and the cookies turned out perfect! These cookies aren't overly sweet, making them great for icing and decorating. Thanks so much! (Note: If you have large cookie cutters like I do (Crate and Barrel), I would suggest doubling the recipe. The first time I made this recipe, I didn't double it and I only got 10 cookies! LOL!)

      I made a batch of these last week to get a head start on holiday baking, and today I had to go back and make a second batch because these worked out really well! They're not too sweet, which is a good thing because the frosting I use is very sweet. The dough was easy to work with and the cookies retain their cut-out shapes after baking (they don't puff up so much that the shapes get distorted). I increased the vanilla to 1 teaspoon. I followed previous reviewers' suggestions and decreased the oven temperature to 375 degrees. Baked for 8 minutes and they turned out perfect. My 3 year old had a blast helping me decorate the first batch, and she's anxiously awaiting tomorrow when we get to put frosting and sprinkles on the latest ones. Thanks so much for posting!!!!
