A really yummy cookie. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. I also rolled the dough into a log and chilled over night. Then sliced and baked them.

Great easy sugar cookie recipe. I did cream the butter and sugar thoroughly as suggested by a previous reviewer, and the cookies turned out beautifully. Thanks for the post!

I made Christmas Tree decoration cookies with my two year old. This recipe has been around for ages, and works great.
