      These soft sugar cookies are not overly sweet and they are very addictive. My husband said they were the best I ever made. I doubled the batch and found them easy, delightful, gratifying and pleasing to elderly people with false teeth! I will definitely make them again. Thank you for sharing.

      These were good cookies, although nothing like the traditional sugar cookie. These chewy cookies are more like a snickerdoodle cookie, which is similar to a sugar cookie. If you are looking for a sugar cookie, I would find another recipe. But if you are looking for a yummy chewy cookie, with a cinnamon sugar topping, you found yourself the right recipe.

      I'm sorry, but this was too terrible to even give one star. We didn't eat these. The dough was extremely liquidy. There was some solid dough and some liquid. After letting it chill, I decided to drain out the liquid and kept my hopes high for a successful batch. I dropped them by the teaspoonful and topped them as directed. When they were taken out of the oven, they had melted onto one pool on the right side of the cookie sheet. The grease had completely separated, and after only seven minutes it was beginning to burn.
