      This makes a delicious sugar cookie. I added 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract along with the vanilla for a unique taste.

      These cookies were a hit - I made them to share with the office as a Christmas treat, and they disappeared in mere moments. Be very sure to roll the dough thin - other wise it will spread in the oven and your cookies will all mush together! They still taste great, but didn't look so hot...thanks for, finally, a great sugar cookie recipe!

      I used these as a basis for Snickerdoodles cookies as the recipe called for a sugar cookie dough to start with. This is AWESOME! Thanks for an easy-to-make treat. I will make these as plain sugar cookies as well. Great job!
