Amish Sugar Cookies

Amish Sugar Cookies created by Courtly

Everyone I've ever made these cookies for describes them as very similar to tea cakes; they are very fluffy with a unique flavor. The recipe was given to me by a close friend of my great-aunt Jackie. They are YUM YUM good!!

    Followed recipe and cookies r flat. Help! Should I add more flour or maybe more baking soda or powder?
  2. Camacho-g
    Will this work if I use sugar substitute like Splenda instead of real sugar
  3. Debra E.
    will the recipe for the sugar cookies work if i cut the recipe in half.

    I wish I had read the reviews before I made this recipe. IT MADE 55 COOKIES! I needed about 25. This recipe made more of a batter than a cookie dough; it spread out a lot on the cookie sheet. You'll probably want to leave 2" between cookies because they spread a lot more during baking. 13-14 minutes in my oven. The result was delicious, airy and cake-like and not too sugary. Very good, but not 5-star, cookies.
