These sugar cookies are simple and delicious. Making the dough is really quick, too, though the rolling and cutting does take a bit of time. I made a half batch of the recipe on two separate occasions this week, the second time dividing the dough into 3 batches: one plain, one with mixed dried fruit (raisins, craisins and blueberries), and one with mini chocolate chips. They all came out beautifully; thin and crisp! I highly recommend this recipe and will definitely use it again and again.
Awesome, easy recipe! I made this gluten-free and vegan by substituting gluten-free all purpose flour and coconut milk instead of eggs. Delicious!
I wanted to make sugar cookies all week and found this recipe here online, so I thought I'd try it. I have made sugar cookies many times before, but I felt like trying this particular recipe, and I must say they turned out perfectly. You can actually put less of certain ingredients to make it to your own taste. The only change I made was I used less sugar, since I used Splenda mixed with Brown Sugar. They are delizioso, especially with Tea.
