    This recipe uses less butter than the original and they still taste great. The recipe is from Dr. Cookie, which is a book that shows you how to make recipes more healthy.

      I love these cookies! This is the recipe I've been searching for- a sugar cookie that is soft, chewy and tasty. I used tub margarine because I didn't have any sticks, and that might have lent to the wonderful soft and chewy texture. I also added 1 tsp. of vanilla for flavor. I had no problems overbaking. I will use this snickerdoodle recipe to make sugar cookies as well. Thank you for posting this recipe.

      These were good, but boy do you have to watch them when they bake, they go from not done to over done like THAT (insert a snap). My kiddos liked them too!
