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!

Great cookies with a rich sweet flavor. I used colored sugar for christmas time and they went very quickly.

Tried these last year for the first time and will continue to make them every year. They absolutely melt in your mouth! I've gotten so many good comments and 3-year-old loves to dip them in the colored sugar. Of all the cookies I make at Christmas, he askes for these the most. THANK YOU for giving my family a new tradition!!!

I used margarine and after baking thought they were just okay. They seem to be crumbley. I put them in a container and after dinner my husband had a few....well, he commented how good they were. So I had another one,they were really good. Softened up but not too much and they aren't that sweet. They would be a great cookie with tea. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. Going to be a staple in this household!

An excellent cookie which I will certainly make again. I consider these a butter cookie rather than a sugar cookie.

Great project to do with the kiddies. They had a blast rolling them in sugar.

We made ours a little bigger and probably got about 2 dozen.

My kids went a little crazy with the sprinkles, would definitely prefer it with less sugar but thought they were very tasty. Would be great to do around Christmas time with red and green sprinkles. TFS.

These are great -- I love to bake, but am not a big cookie eater -- have gotten rave reviews from everyone that has tried them.
