I'm so glad I found this recipe! It's a great recipe for me and my 4-year-old son to bake together! The dough is easy to work with, and the cookies come out delicious, not too sweet, so my son can decorate with icing however he likes:)

These cookies & the icing are amazing! The dough is great to work with and the icing is sweet, but not overly so. It's the perfect compliment to the cookies. Thank you for finally making my sugar cookie baking "easy" again! :)

Another great recipe by Kittencal. These are better than the iced sugar cookies I pay $1 for at my local bakery. I won't by them any more. My kids have eaten almost the whole batch in less than a day. Thanks for sharing.

I made these cookies for a cookie exchange. They loved them! My husband even loved them and he is a picky cookie person. I loved how easy the dough was to roll. Definitely a keeper!!

Loved the icing. Worked well for gingerbread cookies also.

These turned out great!! I loved the detailed directions =). It looks like professionals made these cookies. I can't wait to show them off tomorrow! The glaze consistency reminds me of circus animal cookies (though these are a lot better). I never knew how to accomplish that texture. They definitely need to fully harden overnight but the recipe is very straightforward. I recommend highly!

The dough held its shape nicely, but they had no flavor!! I had a few people try them and they were tasteless!! I am really dissapointed! I ended up throwing them in the trash.

This recipe is the best ever. I've tried a lot of sugar cookie recipes over the years, but have been disappointed in one aspect or another. This dough handles nicely, even when slightly chilled. I rolled it out in my silicone pie-crust bag, and used powdered sugar instead of flour to keep it from sticking. Several reviewers mentioned that the cookies weren't sweet enough, but the small amount added sugar from the powdered sugar gave the dough just a tiny extra bit of sweetness, and a perfect balance of buttery and sweet flavor.

Great recipe! Buttery and delicious not too sweet. I used it to make thumbprint cookies (my boys favorite ) and it turned out better than expected.The icing dried beautifully I added a tsp of butter flavor to it and it was delicious. This is the only sugar cookie recipe I will use going forward!
