This is a great cookie recipe. It not only tastes yummy, but is easy to make and has a nice light brown appearance. This is one of those cookies that everyone asks for the recipe!

These are great and incredibly easy. I substituted a 1/4 c of cocoa for a 1/4 c of flour. They tasted like chocolate shortbread. I'd actually put in a little more if I were to do it again. I also used soy margarine because my son is allergic to dairy - and they were still great. I only cooked them for about 12 minutes, though - and was glad I checked them then because they were quite crispy. Don't know if that was the result of the cocoa or margarine, perhaps?

They are the world's best. I made them exactly according to the recipe. I am not known for my culinary skills. So my brother-in-law had no clue that I was the one that made them. I heard him tell my mother-in-law that these cookies are as good as Mom Mom's. Great compliment even if they don't know it was me. Thank you.

I made these cookies at Christmas and they were really great. I cut them out into snowflake shapes. They are really tasty and will be added to my special list.

Nice, but not what I expected.

These are quite tasty and I think the dough would be easy to work with for cutouts. I'm lazy though and wanted the flavor of a thin cut-out cookie with no fuss. So I rolled the dough into a log and chilled it then sliced it thin and cooked the rounds. Not nearly as pretty, but tasty, easy and pretty fast! Inspires me to try this method with my grandmas sugar cookie recipe.

It's all true! Wonderful butter cookies. We used these as one of the fillers for our Christmas hampers that we gave to family as gifts.

I liked these very much. It is hard to believe that such a "plain" cookie could taste so good. The flavor was really nice as was the texture. I deliberately underbaked mine a bit because I like a softish center with a crispy/sandy exterior. This will go into cookie rotation at our house.
