      my favorite go-to recipe for sugar cookies - if you roll them thicker (more than 1/4"), you'll get soft, tender cookies and if you roll them thinner, they'll be crispy. they are delicious both ways. thanks for sharing!

      I made these cookies to take to my women's bible study meeting. The dough came together well. Rolled out very easily and I used different Christmas cookie cutter shapes. Piped with colored frosting. They looked beautiful and tasted like a delicate butter cookie. Thank you so much.

      These sugar cookies are the best ever in the whole wide world!!! I was surprised at how easy to make they were. I didn't make the frosting, just rolled the dough in little balls then rolled them in sugar and baked. Turned out great. Very soft and buttery. I know I ate at least half of them by myself.
