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!
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.
Excellent cookies! I was looking for a sugar cookie I could bake and decorate for Halloween and came across these. As I used butter with salt already in it I cut down the salt to 1/4 tsp. I increased the vanilla to 2 tsp. I also refrigerated the dough as I didn't have time to bake them the same day. Because they were cold the cooking time was increased to around 9 minutes. These taste like a cross between the best sugar cookies and expensive shortbread...and I haven't even frosted them yet! Thanks so much for sharing this tasty treat!
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 ! :)
Easy to prepare and delicious. Will definitely be making these again.
I needed to make some Funfetti Cookies but all the recipes I could find started with a box cake mix, which I didn't have in the house. I used this recipe as my starting point and went from there. The results were really good! Since they didn't look anything like the original recipe, I decided to post a new recipe for Funfetti Cookies from Scratch and put my photos there. However, I know I'll make them as written here again because they are so much easier than rolled sugar cookies. I'll be sure to take more photos then. Thanks for sharing!
Tasty! We loved these cookies and I liked how easy they were to make. Thanks for this tasty treat!
This is an awesome recipe. My family does love sugar cookies, and this one is great because it is so much easier than traditional sugar cookies that you chill and roll out. I still love those kind, but this is wonderful when you want to make them fast. The taste is perfect, too. Thanks for sharing. I will use this recipe often.
Quick, easy but delicious sugar cookie recipe that my kids devoured!My family really enjoyed these. I made this for Best of 2010 Cookbook Tag. Thanks for a new family favorite!
Made these for my daughter who LOVES sugar cookies...they were very good. I like that they didn't have to chill first and I especially liked not having to roll them out. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Will make again.
