    YungB's Note:

    I am so particular about my sugar cookies. Anyway, after trying many different recipes, I have to say I like this one. It was from the Los Angeles Times "My Best Recipe". I have used this recipe for many years now. Please try it out and tell me what you think. These are crispy not the soft kind. The yield is estimated since it depends on how large your cookies are.

      Great recipe! It hard to find a really good sugar cookie that isn't too "overwhelmingly" sweet. These are perfect for frosting - if you don't have people waiting for them the minute they are cool enough to pick up! LOL!!! Thanks YungB! I will make these again soon! Made for 2009 Spring PAC Edited to add - the amount of granulated sugar is not listed, so I used equal amounts of powdered sugar and granulated sugar. Which was perfect. :)

      I made this recipe with my granddaughter. I must say that we did not like it. No one in the house liked it. It tasted all like flour and not like a sugar cookie. The went in the garbage they were so bad. What a waste of 5 cups of flour. We aren't that picky but these cookies were just very bad. I am gonna try another recipe with her tonight that has more sugar and less flour.

      My Dad cut this recipe out of a magazine, I made them, and the family will not eat anything other than these! At Christmas, I crushed a cup of starlight mints and added it to the dry ingredients. Well, now they must have crushed peppermints in them. These cookies have a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth consistency but do not break up.
