This is a wonderful and easy sugar cookie cut-out recipe. Perfectly simple enough to bake and decorate with kids! The cookies came out perfect. I used Sugar Cookie Icing Sugar Cookie Icing from Food.com to ice them. Lovely!
This recipe is HORRIBLE! Do not use! They do not taste like sugar cookies at all! Tasted like biscuits, it was awful!!! The reason the recipe is so simple is because it's not good, don't waste your time.
I LOVE this recipe! Instead of using vanilla, I use 2tsps of almond extract. Everyone thinks I'm a pro! I bought the smallest strawberry cookie cutter and painted the cookies with just watered down food colouring before I baked them....AMAZING! Because of you, I make the most amazing birthday cookies! Thanx Gingerbee! MUAH!
These are SOOOO good! I took the advice of some other reviews, and made them a bit thicker since I enjoy soft sugar cookies. We used the RecipeZaar recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/Sugar-Cookie-Frosting-235776 for the frosting and the results were fantastic! Now I just have to refrain from eating too many ;-)
Pretty good. I do prefer softer, sweeter cookies and these bake harder and are not that sweet. Only problem was that the dough turned crumbly after mixing, even though I followed directions and softened the butter before use. To solve, I added a few drops of water at a time to the crumbly dough, until it was smooth and pliable. A tip I read: use confectioner sugar instead of flour to roll out dough. That really helped add more sweetness! I'm giving a 4 due to not needing to refrigerate prior to use, recipe ease, and fact that dough held the cookie cutter shapes. Would make again as my 9, 4, and yr old loved them :)
These are fantastic! I have tried several sugar cookie recipes from food.com- even those Granny's cookies that were so popular- and I found these to be SO much better! I amended the recipe a little bit based on other's reviews- I sprinkled in some orange zest into the dough ( probably 1 teaspoon at the most) and added one- half teaspoon of almond extract in addition to the vanilla-. Then if I needed any flour while rolling out I a conf sugar and flour mix on the roller so the dough did not get bland. These are crisper cookies than the soft sugar cookies- much better to my liking. They are more the old fashioned variety. And they taste so much better. Thank you Eloise!
These were really fun and easy to make! I made them in all differant shapes, including dog bone. I will make these again.
We had such a blast baking & decorating these cookies! They were sooo easy to make, and soo fluffy! The only downside that I found was they were a little on the bland side.. Next time, I'll add in a lil' somethin' somethin' to give it a bit more flavor. But, everyone else LOVED them!
I unbiasedly must say I grew up with the world's best sugar cookie maker as my grandma, but alas she is no longer here and her 125+ year old recipe is much more time consuming and difficult to make. An impatient 3 year old couldn't understand that so I found this recipe to try and was pleasantly surprised. We added a touch of lemon extract to make them taste more like Grandma's and put candy sprinkles on them before baking them. They were fabulous and were gone in no time at all! One review I read said to grease the cookie sheet and I tried it both ways with no noticeable difference. Much better sugar cookie recipe than I've tried in the past. Not grandma's but still very, very good.
