This is my new sugar cookie recipe. Thank you for yet another perfect recipe Kittencal! I have used the same very well liked sugar cookie recipe for the last 15 years, but they are so much work and a more difficult recipe to get right. I am done making those, thanks for making my holiday baking easier!

There is a reason 250 people have given this 5 stars. This is a NO fail recipe. I have used it for a couple of years now. It works well as a single batch, and easily doubles. I have used it to make giant sugar cookies on a stick (the lollipop sticks) so we could dip them in chocolate frosting and roll in sprinkles or Heath Toffee bits, etc. Start with this recipe and add your own variations - this is the only sugar cookie recipe you'll ever need. This recipe is perfect!

These are nice. I've just eaten several, but I don't LOVE the almond. I think I'll stick with vanilla. Dough was super easy to put together and work with. It even held up well to 3 & 5 yr olds repeat rollings and smashing. I rolled into one large ball to refridgerate and chilled for about 1 1/2 hrs. The cookies held their shape well. Icing dries nice I used vanilla in mine. I will use this recipe again.

Does anyone know if you can put this frosting in a pastry bag?

Great recipe. Really tasty. I used store bought icing for Halloween. I also used just vanilla extract (no almond), and additional 1/4 cup of brown sugar and a tsp of cinnamon. I normally detest sugar cookies, but these were fantastic. I almost lost control and ate several just walking by them.
