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.

These are some of the best sugar cookies I've ever made. I made a batch for Valentines Day and read the recipe wrong only using 2 tsp of vanilla, STILL fantastic.. they were gone so fast. Hubby took some to work and he was sent out on a job for a couple hours, when he came back they were gone so I had to make him more to console him, Sugar cookies are his favorite and the LOVES these. Thanks for a great recipe. This one is going into my book of keepers.

Best sugar cookie recipe I've ever come across. The dough is easy to work with, and it bakes up really well. This will be my new "go to" sugar cookie recipe.

These cookies are yummy and delicious, so far the best sugar cookie recipe ever. I like how the dough is so easy to roll out and doesnt stick. We used christmas cookie cutters to cut out shapes. For the frosting I added some milk to it, making it easier for us to frost the cookies. Definitely will use this recipe again, holiday or not, it is still very yummy. Thanks for the recipe! =)

These are great tasting sugar cookies. They are easy to roll and work with. They have a softer texture than your traditional super crisp sugar cookie which I like however I guess that also depends on how thick you roll them and cooking time. Anyways, they are great! They make cute christmas cookies.

These were good- but not as good as I expected. The dough was very easy to work with but mine ended up tasting kind of bland- not as tasty as some sugar cookie recipes- I followed the recipe exactly so I am going to look at other recipes and see what the difference was- Some of mine were thicker and those were really biscuity- the thin ones were better.

I made these last week. I wanted to make flags as we were going to a fireworks show with a big group. I was going to do cut outs the day before but ran out of time. I ended up doing a slice and bake. I just chilled the dough in a rectangle shape then sliced. I used my own recipe for the frosting, Frosting for Cookies, Muffins and Danish (Can Be Dairy Free). I will be making these again for the 4th.
