    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    Once I tried these, I never bothered making 'traditional' sugar cookies again. A soft, flavorful cookie that is a MUST for me at Christmas. Note, the original recipe said they were cut-out cookies but I never was able to get them to work well that way. That is why I make the round ones as described.

      Nice and chewy! Great texture and great taste. I subbed 1 TBSP applesauce for part of the butter and I got 24 good size cookies from the batch, which I frosted and sprinkled with decorative sugar. They only lasted a day and a half between 6 people. My kids already asked me to make them again.
