      I agree with one of the reviewer's critiques about the directions needing to be swapped in order, BUT the cookies are just so dang tasty that I can't take away a star. I'm super picky about my sugar cookies and usually get disappointed, but the first time I made these (over 10 years ago for bribery during a high school English presentation) they set a standard that has been difficult to match since. I just made them again for the first time in too long and was delighted with the results - soft, fluffy, and sweet. Add to that easy and fairly quick? Yes please!

      I haven't made this yet, but I plan to. Sugar is treated as a liquid. I learned that watching Alton Brown!
