Thank you thank you thank you for posting this recipe. I have searched high and low for a good recipe for sugar cookies and stumbled onto your recipe. Although I didn't use this recipe to cut my cookies into shapes. I just wanted a recipe for fluffy sugar cookies and tried this. The first time I used this recipe it was really quick, and the cookies came out just right. With the perfect combination of really fluffy and crunchy. :)
Love this recipe! I also added 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 tsp. cream of tarter and a tbls of orange zest. I found that chilling before rolling and cutting did help:-) delicious and easy! Thanks for posting!
This cookies turned out amazing! Soft and delicious!
My sister and I made these this weekend for Christmas gift-giving, and had no problems at all with the dough, or the flvor of the baked cookies. We made several different sizes from 1" to 2" and found we needed different baking times based on size and thickness - 6 minutes for the smaller/thinner ones, and 7 minutes for the bigger/thicker ones. Time cooling also seemed to affect whether or not they held together...we had some angel wings and heads break off trying to get them off the pan :( Overall, this was a simple and flavorful recipe - we used powdered sugar to roll out, and the dough was the perfect consistency. We did chill it for about 15 minutes before rolliing them out, but after that we used the dough at room temperature with no problems. Will definitely make these again.
Let me start off by saying, I've always been hesitant about these kinds of cookies (cut out). I made these last night and they came out GREAT!! I love them (I did let my dough chill for about 15-20 mins just to be safe) I was able to cut them out easily, this will be my GO TO RECIPE from now on!! THANKS SO MUCH!!
Just a comment on some reviewers saying they were too salty...wonder if they were using salted butter? I hadn't even considered it, but we only ever buy unsalted butter and mine turned out delicious. If salted butter is not supposed to be used, maybe it should be mentioned in the recipe. This was my first time making suger cookies (with a 2 year old!) and they turned out great!
I'm sorry but these are not doughy, they come out as a thick batter and when I tried to roll it out I ended up with thick batter stuck to my hands and everything else. I stuck it in the fridge just now hoping it will harden enough to roll out so my son can use cookie cutters, fingers crossed!
So easy and very delicious!! So happy I made christmas cookies with this recipe :)
REally good sugar cookies. I let my kids go to town with them one afternoon....easy enough for children to make!<br/><br/>(From www.cougarflirts.com)
These cookies are not good for cookie cutters this recipe failed on that the cookie dough was too gooey to even shape with your hands!!!!! I was making Halloween cookies when this failed so we made them circular cookies and may i say they smelt delicious and tasted Ok!! I know i did the recipe right but over all bad recipe for cookie cutting and Ok recipe for decorating and eating!
