Very nice cookie. I substituted natural almond extract for half of the vanilla the recipe called for. I rolled the cookie dough into walnut sized balls and gently flattened it with the bottom of a heavy glass and sprinkled the cookies with a chunky granulated sugar before baking. After being baked and cooled I dipped half the cookie into the white chocolate glaze. Amazing,Delicious, a definate keeper of a recipe.
FINALLY! A good sugar cookie for using cutters. They hold their shape & taste delicious. This one is going in the recipe box as THE recipe for when the kids want to use cookie cutters. Thanks!!
Kitten - thanks for a great, user-friendly sugar cookie recipe! I tend to shy away from rolled cookies - but this is wonderfully forgiving dough. Is it the powdered sugar? And they are very tasty and they travel well (we took a batch to my daughter in college). Looks like I am making these again this Christmas! May even try the frosting this year ; ) Happy Holidays!
These were great! i used them to make nautical themed sugar cookies and they held their shape really well, the only problem i had was that the dough kept falling apart and i had to keep throwing dough on it, but other than that its a really good cookie.
Forgive me Kitten for taking the liberty to combine two of your recipes. I made the cookies as instructed...I left the dough in the fridge overnight. Let me tell you it was some of the nicest dough I have ever rolled out, no matter how many times I rerolled it, it was so since and smooth. I did have to cut the cooking time down a couple minutes but it is my oven. They made beautiful snowflake cookies for my cookie exchange party. I decorated them with the icing from Kittencal's Buttery Cut-Out Sugar Cookies W/ Icing That Hardens. I made a blue batch and a plain white icing batch. They were an absolute hit at the party. As always, Kittens recipes never fail and always impress. Thanks Kitten.
Just made these for the third time and they are fabulous! The neighbors devoured these over the holidays and every time that I make them they vaporize within hours. Thanks for the incredible recipe!
Yummmy! I have made sugar cookies in the past and always been let down by how dry they turn out.Not the case with these cookies at all! they almost tasted more like shortbread.We made them for my daughters teddy bear picnic at school and cut out teddy bear shaped cookies.I didn't have any white chocolate so I just melted down some lindt chocolates(the balls in the red wrappers) then drizzled the chocolate over the cookies with a spoon once they were cool.Hubby wanted to eat them instead of sen them to school ;) They were a big hit with the kids and easy to make, thanks so much for this recipe,I'll be using it again for christmas cookies too:)
Love these cookies!
I made these as an experiment for my holiday cookie tray without using the white chocolate, I can't wait to make these again dipped in the chocolate, it couldn't get any better than this! 10 stars for these cookies! thank you Kitty.
