I love this recipe. How ever it doesn't make 36 cookies. It makes about 5 or so dozen depending on how thick you cut them out. Keep in mind that this recipe fluffs up in the oven really good. My kids liked them so much they ate them before I frosted them.

Made amazingly fluffy dough. I cut mine a little thick so they stayed that way and make almost a cookie/cake...lots of cookies too! i had almost 4 dozen thick cookies so it could have easily made 6 doz cookies of proper thickness

These are great! DH loves sugar cookies and these were no exception (the camo helicopters were for him). Nice soft, moist cookies. I like the combination of vanilla and almond extracts. This makes a ton! I didn't refrigerate the dough for 2 hours, it was more like 20 min. I probably would have had even better results if I wasn't so impatient. :)
