I've been looking and looking for a good sugar cookie recipe that would hold its shape when baked, but still be soft (not crispy). This recipe did the trick. I made 3 dozen perfect ghost cookies today, and 2 dozen perfect pumpkin cookies yesterday. The cookie is a wonderful buttery/sugary cookie that is still soft when cooled. Make sure you watch the cookies and take them out when you see the first signs of golden-brown on the bottom. I rolled and re-rolled the dough many times and all the cookies were perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!!
Lovely sugar cookies, a little difficult to roll but turned out great and made a huge amount. I made them for a Valentine's Day afternoon tea. Made them in different sized heart shapes and iced them, DH loved them so did everyone else. Thanks for posting.
