This was an excellent recipe. I had been searching for a sugar cookie that the little ones enjoyed: they're unusually picky about the taste of their cookies. They really enjoyed this one though, even though we just made frosted drop cookies instead of chilling and cutting them. <br/><br/>The only reason it gets 4/5 is because I had to adjust the oven temp (thanks for the warning) and baked them for 9 minutes. The consistency was very gooey but perfect for drop cookies. Overall they were awesome.
I had a taste for some soft sugar cookies, so I went straight to RecipeZaar! This recipe was very basic and easy. I loved it! My cookies were very tasty, soft near the middle, but crunchy around the edges. Excellent for my taste! My only recommendation would be to chill them a bit longer than 30 minutes. You will find that they form better and are easier to handle when you drop them on the cookie sheet. Thanks Dayla!
I made 1/2 the recipe to mail to our nephew. So I didn't exactly taste them, but they were SO easy to make & smelled wonderful. I almost didn't make the frosting, but I thought it would be fun to try it. THAT tasted great & frosted the cokies nicely! I didn't chill the dough or roll it out--just made normal cookies. I used Splenda for sugar since that's all I use. The frosting hardened nicely on the cookies so I feel safe mailing them. I took a suggestion & baked them at 375 for about 8 min. I hope to make these for more folks. Thanks so much!!
