      It's understandable why this cookie was a 1st place winner. It bakes up perfectly. The cookie is firm, but delicate. I made the dough, refrigerated it for 1.5 days, let it come to room temperature & baked it off. Instead of dropping by a teaspoon, I divided the dough & made 60 balls, which I flattened with the glass dipped in sugar. They came out uniform & perfect in every way. Thank you alligirl for a sugar cookie recipe that is easy to make & a keeper! Made for Everyday Holiday Tag-Dec'09.

      I have made these cookies twice, the first time I used the amount of salt specified and thought the cookies ended up tasting salty - so I made them again with half the amount and that seemed to just right. I liked that these could be made in a hurry!

      Wow this is a great recipe Alli! I usually shy away from sugar cookies because you have to chill the dough, roll it out and decorate. But this recipe has me now wanting to make these all the time! I was finished with 4 dozen cookies in less than an hour. I did have to bake mine for 10 minutes a batch but that is not a biggie as ovens give and take a bit. I used red & pink sugars this time around but I know next time I'm going to use a cinnamon/sugar mix and make them taste like snickerdoodles. Absolutely wonderful! Congrats on your win in the Football Playoff week ! :)
