    ReeLani's Note:

    These cookies never last out the day at work, church get-togethers or wherever I take them. I got this recipe back in high school in my German class and have been making them ever since. Yummy! They've become my annual blue ribbon winner at the local county fair.

      Very good sugar cookie. I made them with real butter. They have a nice texture, too. I got exactly 4 dozen out of this recipe and used my 1-inch cookie scoop (I love that thing). A little refrigeration was necessary in order to easily form the dough balls. I rolled the dough in sanding sugar before baking. Those big sugar crystals really made the cookies look nice. I baked them at 325° for about 12 minutes because I used a convection oven. Thanks for sharing.

      I'm in LOVE.....These are exactly what I was looking for, soft on the inside, sugary and crispy on the outside. I got 5 dozen and I baked them 8 minutes. I used margarine but can imagine the richness if butter is used. The last pan is still in the oven but I ha to sit down and type this......THESE ARE HEAVEN SENT!!!Thank you angel...ReeLani!

      These have to be the richest sugar cookies I've ever tasted! I did use real butter and they almost taste more like a butter cookie than the light, delicate sugar cookies that I am used to. I rolled in a cinnamon/sugar mixture which worked perfectly. I prepared a little larger than the directions called for and got a total of 2 dozen. Delicious! Thank you, ReeLani!
