    These are an excellent sugar cookie. However, your yield amount is way off. I got 64 very large cookies. I wondered when I saw the 4 plus cups of flour. I will certainly make these again.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely recipe. These sugar cookies were awesome. I took them to a family get together and they were well received... none left for the hostess at the end of the day. The kids were taking them two at a time. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag game.

    These sugar cookies are very, very, good! They are soft, light, and rich. I also flattened the cookie with a glass dipped in sugar and cinnamon. Yum, yum!

    This is a wonderful recipe! The cookies turned out so light and crisp... This is the best sugar cookie I have ever had. I did however make two changes: 1- I used avocado oil - there was no hint of it in the cookie 2- I did not refrigerate the dough... I just couldn't... I must have cookies now! I used my cookie scoop and pressed them with a glass dipped in colored sugar Such a great cookie recipe... I know I will be making these many many times

    I made these last night and added the nutmeg as another reviewer suggested. My hubby threw his in the trash after one bite. I like nutmeg in a lot of things, but these cookies are NOT one of them. Would have probably been good without that addition. I should have known better. Otherwise, were flaky, melt in your mouth and uniform in shape and color. Made them for a neighbor's 1st grade son to take to his teacher. I hope she doesn't flunk him. ;(

My husband and I got married very young and now are in our twenties raising our 3 children. We recently celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary. As a family that was started at such a young age we are used to cooking on a budget. As my children grow older (they are now 9,8, and 4) I am getting used to cooking in larger quantities also. Recipezaar has been an absolute God send in helping me plan meals for my family.
