    This cookie is a wonderful soft cookie that will keep you sneaking more after the kids go to bed. I think I have seen these cookies being called lady fingers also. Yummy any time of the year, but just remind me of Christmas!!!!

      I thought this recipe was really good, I omitted the chilling time and used a cookie press to make the cookies instead of rolling them out. I would decrease the oven temp though 400 was much to high and I shortened the baking time to 6 min. maybe my oven gets to hot. nice tasting cookie

      This was an excellent recipe. I had been searching for a sugar cookie that the little ones enjoyed: they're unusually picky about the taste of their cookies. They really enjoyed this one though, even though we just made frosted drop cookies instead of chilling and cutting them.

      The only reason it gets 4/5 is because I had to adjust the oven temp (thanks for the warning) and baked them for 9 minutes. The consistency was very gooey but perfect for drop cookies. Overall they were awesome.

      I had a taste for some soft sugar cookies, so I went straight to RecipeZaar! This recipe was very basic and easy. I loved it! My cookies were very tasty, soft near the middle, but crunchy around the edges. Excellent for my taste! My only recommendation would be to chill them a bit longer than 30 minutes. You will find that they form better and are easier to handle when you drop them on the cookie sheet. Thanks Dayla!
