    Judy in MO's Note:

    This is by far the prettiest, easiest (no rolling) and best tasting sugar cookie I have ever made. They look like they came right out of the bakery. Try them-- then stand back and wait for the oohs and ahs!!!!

      Needed a quick recipe for a last-minute event - WOW! I used 1/4 cup LESS sugar, 3/4 TABLESPOON vanilla, and I rolled the 24 cookie balls (made 'em a touch larger) in the 1/4 cup of sugar saved from recipe. Since I'm at a higher elevation I baked for 11 minutes at 375 degrees.<br/>This is a keeper!

      These cookies are awesome!!! Made one batch for my daughter's gymnatics party and then turned around and made a second for here at home. Super easy and tastes good!! Dipped the faces of the cookies in red and white sugar crystals and baked mine an extra 2 - 3 minutes to brown slightly. Definitely will make these again. Thanks for the great recipe!!

      These were quite tasty, but didn't crackle for me. We baked them close to 15 minutes and still no crackle but still soft on the inside. Rolled them in sugar before baking. Will make again as they were very easy to make and will be pretty rolled in colored sugar
