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!

Nice flavor...however they turned out much more crispy than I expected. I think the recipe needs more flour and perhaps a little baking soda.

I made 1/2 the recipe to mail to our nephew. So I didn't exactly taste them, but they were SO easy to make & smelled wonderful. I almost didn't make the frosting, but I thought it would be fun to try it. THAT tasted great & frosted the cokies nicely! I didn't chill the dough or roll it out--just made normal cookies. I used Splenda for sugar since that's all I use. The frosting hardened nicely on the cookies so I feel safe mailing them. I took a suggestion & baked them at 375 for about 8 min. I hope to make these for more folks. Thanks so much!!

So amazing!!! The best flavor I've come across! Next time I'm going to roll them to about 1/2" thick instead of 1/4", they will be so 'melt in your mouth'. Thanx

Looooved these cookies. My son loved the batter, too, LOL! I'm not a sugar cookie fan, my son is so I made these for him. I ate MOST of them!

I made a double batch, substituting Splenda Granular for the sugar in both the cookie and frosting recipes. I also cut the baking temperature down to 350°. They came out great! Looked just like the sugar cookies that Mom used to make. Thanks for the recipe!

I'm going to go against the grain here and say I was not happy with this recipe. The taste was excellent, but the recipe needs too much modification to be rated a 5 star. It needed a LOT more flour to be rollable, and the time of 8 minutes at 400 degrees only got me a tray of burnt cookies. In the end, I spent a lot more time than I expected to to get 2 dozen cookies. I'll try a different recipe next time.
