Do you know your sugar cookies have traveled all the way to France?! I'm an American who relocated to France a year ago and I love recipezaar because it helps me remember American style cooking! Anyway, we LOVED these sugar cookies! They were delicious! What a yummy recipe!
Very good! A nice basic rolled sugar cookie recipe that yields a dough that's easy to work with. We added food coloring for our pumpkin cookies, subbed with margarine and added a dash of almond extract for a little more flavor. Thanks for posting! We uploaded a picture of our Halloween cookies too.
We called these "Granny Cookies" growing up. My Granny would add nutmeg and walnuts, chocolate chips or raisins. We just drop by spoon instead of rolling them out. Also, have a glass of milk handy for dunking. Yummy memories.
