    carbsrfromhvn's Note:

    There is a brand of store bought, iced sugar cookies in my area that I just love. They are called Debbie Joe's. I dare say these are better. I can make them from home so they are economical, more fresh, and lack any of those commercial baking ingrediets. I just love them. You can add the vanilla but I actually find they taste better without it.

      Great cookies! Very much like a commercial cookie that we occasionally buy here. Be careful not to overmix the batter, I think I did and my cookies were a little tough. Also, I baked the first batch for 11 minutes and the bottoms were browned which made the cookies a little tough so I baked the rest for a shorter time and they were much better. Finally, I will cut down on the butter in the icing next time because it tasted too much like butter. Overall a great recipe though, thanks for sharing!

      WAY better than the store bought soft sugar cookie. I strongly dislike crunchy sugar cookies, so this recipe was perfect! I switched out about half a cup of flour for french vanilla pudding. Your icing is also fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

      These were super soft and fluffy, the kids liked them once the frosting was on them, otherwise they had a strong "flour" taste. I think we may just prefer a regular sugar cookie than this type.
