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 used real butter and hand mixed everything. 1/4 of dry ingredients at a time. I refrigeratedon't the dough for an hour and didn't need any flour to roll it out. Not sticky at all. I baked them for 8 minutes. These are soft moist and so so tasty. I was worried after reading some reviews about them being bland or dry. I'm not sure where they went wrong or I went right but these are delicious cookies. I've never baked sugar cookies before. I'm just broke and happened to have the ingredients and wanted to make cookies for my kids. I highly recommend these. I'll definitely save this recipie. This picture is half of the recipie. I have the rest in the fridge for later.
