These cookies are so good! They're nice and soft with a not too sweet taste. I just cut them in rounds and after baking, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. Very easy recipe! I will make these again. Thanks Laura!

These are very good cookies for cutouts as they don't rise to much. Also I only used 1/2 cup milk. One batch I used Sunny Delight instead of milk, everybody loved them.

These were very soft cookies. My kids ate them even without the frosting! They stored well but didn't last long in our house. Thanks for posting.

This was very bland and not sweet at all. It was difficult to make because of the alternation of the wet and dry ingredients which were very difficult to mix. Also, the dough becomes unmanageable very quickly when taken out of the fridge.

These are the best cookies,ever. They were such a hit at home and at my daughters school. I have found a new sugar cookie recipe. I don't much care for the hard ones and these stayed soft. I used a smooth icing for the tops, but they were fine without it.

Fantastic Recipe! Thank you so much, I thoroughly impressed my husband. Came out like the Lofthouse Cookies my DH loves from the grocery store, only way better because of course, they're fresh! Big, "fluffy", not too sweet. I used 1 stick U/s butter and 1 stick salted (I don't like to use shortening). Great recipe. Use plenty of flour during rollout. I made mine on the thick side, and needed 11-12 minutes in the oven. Came out fantastic! Iced with a thick sugar/butter icing. Perfect!

These were good. My 5 year old and I made them for Valentines Day and sent them to school.

I did not care for these at all. They tasted very bland. It was like eating plain flour. They had a very nice soft fluffy texture though. I even added extra sugar to the recipe like some reviewers said and it din't help much. Sorry, but I don't think I'll be making these again.

This is a really great sugar cookie recipe if you like soft, thick cookies. After reading the other comments I did add 1/2 cup of brown sugar also just to make them a liitle sweeter. The final result was a nice soft cookie with a nice, not overly sweet flavor. The dough itself was a little sticky even after several hours in the fridge, but plenty of flour on your hands and the counter took care of that. This will become my staple suger cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Great recipe. Very much like the one that I make but a little softer. I use almond extract instead of vanilla and you wouldn't believe what a difference it makes, it's like a completely different recipe.
