"These are one of my favorite cookies. I love the taste of vanilla and butter and this simple cookie is full of that great flavor!"
Serving Size: 1 (1028 g)

"Yummy! Used real butter (no shortening) and extra vanilla (cuz I LOVE vanilla) instead of butter flavoring. Didn't read the part about refrigerating the dough until after they were in the oven (oops!) but it made no difference. Will make again."
"Yumm! I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, increased the vanilla to 1.5 and did not use the butter flavoring and they were still awesome. Thx for the recipe!"
"Absolutely Wonderful! My husband is litterally addicted to these cookies. I made my first batch with the butter flavored crisco and they were good, but when I switched the crisco for real butter the cookies were lightyears better. I will continue to use the recipe, Thanks KC_Cooker :)"
"Omg... these are amazing cookies! I did not have the butter flavor extract but, I added an extra half teaspoon of vanilla. I am so happy I decided to make a double batch as these will disappear quickly in our house. Thanks for a wonderful cookie recipe :-)"
"A local bakery in my town makes the best sugar cookies and I have been trying to duplicate them. I found out that they use a butter cookie recipe. My search stops with this recipe. I just need to add a buttercream icing to these to duplicate those cookies. These are wonderful cookies. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Can't get any better than these cookies."
"I made these yesterday with just a few substitutions. I used 1/2 cup butter flavored crisco and 1/2 cup of butter. I didn't use butter extract. I also added pecan pieces, my husband has to have nuts in his cookies. I also rolled my cookies into balls then in sugar. Absolutely wonderful, light and soft. Thanks so much for posting!"
"Excellent soft chewy butter cookie. I changed the recipe I used real cabot butter and I didn't use butter flavored extract, because I used real butter. I bake and cook with real butter all the time,because the flavor is better when you use real butter. I will continue to make this recipe. Thanks for sharing KC Cooker."
"WOW! These are so AWESOME! So easy and come out fabulous! I added sugar on top of some and left some plain. The sugar wasn't really needed; they are the perfect balance of sweet, buttery, soft plus crisp outside. I made mine with a 1 1/2 inch scoop and they took 10 minutes. Thanks so much for posting this...it's so much better than the frozen cookie dough I was using."
"Yum! These were great cookies. We really enjoyed them, my kids especially. It's their new favorite cookie. I didn't have butter extract so I used almond instead. I'll try butter flavoring next time, and maybe sprinkle the tops with a bit of sugar before baking. We love soft cookies like this. Thanks for posting!"
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Just brought the first batch of these cookies out of the oven and they are EXACTLY what I was hoping for. The only thing I did different from the recipe was to substitute lemon flavoring for the butter flavoring because my husband and I LOVE LEMON! This recipe was easy to put together and the dough is super easy to work with. I'm sooooo happy right now and can't wait to share them with family and friends!!"
"I didn't rate because I didn't follow the recipe. I substituted butter for the Crisco and the cookies turned out like a softer version of a Danish butter cookie (like the ones you get in a tin at Christmas). They tasted good, but were not what I was expecting or wanting. After a quick Internet search it seems like this is what should be expected if using butter in place of Crisco, so I thought I'd post this for others as baking ignorant as me. Made this way, the seem more like a cookie suitable for icing."
"Best Butter Cookie Recipe I have ever used I made it for the family and everyone gave it two thumbs up TASTY YUMMY COOKIES!!!!"
"what a wonderful flavor! these are great basic cookies. I like that you can halve the recipe easily."
"These cookies were perfect! They came out beautifully! I didn't add any butter flavoring, but I did chop up about 12 Oreo cookies and added them to the batter for a little extra kick. Delicious!"
"lovely outstanding it's the best"
"we really appreciated these cookies, they are chewy as stated! easy recipe, thank you! Marella"
"I did not really like these, for some reason these cookies tasted like baking soda, and were rather cakey."
