Fantastic recipe. The dough is delicious, and the cookies came out so pretty. I used jolly ranchers instead of lollipops and they worked great.
These are quite possibly the best sugar cookies I've made so far (and I've made tons). At first the dough was a bit crumbly but I just added a tiny bit of water and oil and it came together nicely. I chilled the dough before shaping and I found it really easy to work with. Most of the cookies I just dipped into sprinkles (jimmies) and colored sugar but I did use a few of the crushed candies which of course the kids loved. Thank you so much for a great recipe.
These cookies are very good. I can't believe nobody has rated them before! They look very dramatic and labour-intensive, but they're incredibly easy. Thanks for making me look good!
