"This is a quick and easy not-too-sweet cookie, shaped by rolling into balls rather than rolled out and cut. The dough will keep in freezer for up to a week. The baked cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days."

"I made these for my in-laws, who like cookies for Christmas presents. They are somewhat picky about their sugar cookies, and don't like the shortbread type. I also don't like to roll out and cut cookies with cutters. These really fit the bill! Thank you! Add to review 2012: I realized I was probably making them too thin because they were crispy instead of soft, so I made them thicker, like the recipe called for. Made all the difference in the world! They are still the best tasting sugar cookies I have ever made, crispy or not--sweet and buttery."
"I made these for Christmas and used colored sugars to roll them in. They were not only pretty but also pretty yummy! Thanks for the super sugar cookie recipe it is now added to my must-have list for chistmas cookie baking."
"mmmmmmm is all i can say"
"I made this from Cook's Illustrated yesterday and looked to see if it had been posted to 'zaar. I followed the directions carefully but I am having some spreading. The flavor and texture are excellent. I rolled all of the dough in balls and froze the ones I wasn't immediately going to eat. Thanks for posting!"
"yum., but i actually did think they were quite sweet...."
"Good buttery soft cookie and very quick and easy to make."
"This recipe was what i have been looking for in a long time. i am glad to have found this"
"Loved these cookies! They come out very nicely, and I added frosting and sprinkles to some of them. They were delicious! The cookies were gone within 10 minutes."
"The cookies tasted good, but were completely flat and ugly."
"This is the recipe I was looking for. The cookie comes out soft and chewy. Just like the mall cookies. I used regular all purpose flour. Thanks for posting this recipe. I have made hundreds of different recipes and this was by far the easiest and best tasting of all the sugar cookies I have made."
"awesome cookies!( i posted this review on another cookie recipe just now on accident- oops!) i was looking for a sugar cookie with some good texture and chewiness, kind of like one you would get at the mall, and this was exactly that. i followed the instructions exactly except i used 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter. they are delicious!"
