"This makes a delicious sugar cookie. I added 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract along with the vanilla for a unique taste."
"These cookies were a hit - I made them to share with the office as a Christmas treat, and they disappeared in mere moments. Be very sure to roll the dough thin - other wise it will spread in the oven and your cookies will all mush together! They still taste great, but didn't look so hot...thanks for, finally, a great sugar cookie recipe!"
"I used these as a basis for Snickerdoodles cookies as the recipe called for a sugar cookie dough to start with. This is AWESOME! Thanks for an easy-to-make treat. I will make these as plain sugar cookies as well. Great job!"
"These were nasty, had to throw them away..."
"This has been my favorite sugar cookie recipe for a while now. There was a time when i would use Earth Balance butter for this recipe instead of butter and the dough was always really dry so the cookies would hold there shape perfectly. When i used real butter the dough was very soft and didn't hold a crisp shape in the oven. They still taste great and are soft. Still a favorite."
"These cookies melted away in the oven. I really love thick sugar cookies, and these are not it!"
"AWESOME! After trying about a dozen sugar cookie recipes that were flops, I have found a great one! These are easy and delicious. I can't wait to make them again with my whole family! THANKS!"
"These are fast easy and roll out thin very well. Grandson of four rolled and cut perfectly, we had to make all cars though, which had to be decorated with pink royal icing. Perfect Christmas tray cookie."
"I have to say these are awesome. This is the first time I've made sugar cookies in about 6-7 years. I hate making them, their time consuming. These are well worth making. They make a lot and taste great. I let the kids do the frosting and decorating it worked out well. When I make sugar cookies this is the recipe I'll use it is very easy. Thanks, Linda!"
"these are outstanding! they melt in your mouth! I added 1 3/4 cups of powdered sugar to make them slightly sweeter because my family have many sweet teeth...thanks for posting. send many more!"
"outstanding taste, texture, and prep. the best sugar cookie i've ever had. melts in the mouth. easy to decorate. thanks for sharing it. ( i added a dash of almond along with the vanilla like another lady did.)"
"Very good recipe. I substituted 1/3 c coconut oil for 1/2 c of the butter. It turned out great, really melt in your mouth."
"I didn't even like sugar cookies until I had this recipe. So easy, so fast, so good. I used a daisy cookie cutter about 3" across and got about 21 cookies."
"This is the BEST sugar cookie I have ever tasted! Everyone asks for the recipe. I usually frost them. They're GREAT!"
