Ready In:



  • Cream Crisco and sugar together.
  • Add all other ingredients except flour.
  • Slowly add flour until you can handle it enough to roll out on a floured surface (Dough can also be used for filled cookies).
  • Cut dough with cookie cutters into fun shapes.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes.
  • Don't overcook.
  • They will look pretty lightly colored when done.
  • If they start to brown, you've cooked them too long and they won't be soft.

    These cookies are horrible. I mean seriously. They are cakey, and so totally too soft to stack and/or move around at all and taste heavily like baking soda and baking powder. Ish. Seriously. Totally disappointed in these. On to the next cuz this one is NOT it. 100%

    These cookies were great! The took very little time to put together and even less time to bake! I used this recipe to make cut out cookies of cars and airplanes for a baby shower and every one loved them!

    2nd review: I made these again and they are sooooo good! I had people begging me for more, and I had planned on taking them to neighbors and is a good thing I doubled the recipe. I did actually use cookie cutters this time *I went out and finally broke down and bought some*, and they were so easy to do! I also cooked them for 8 minutes exactly this time, due to a new oven that heats and works properly. Thanks so much for this great recipe!!! 1st review: These are the BEST sugar cookies that I have made, by far!!! I love this recipe and will be making these from now on. They were a flaky soft, which is what I love in sugar cookies. I added 7 cups flour, then used a cookie scoop (1-inch) and then placed them on an ungreased cookie sheet. I then used the bottom of a glass coated with sugar to flatten them to 1/4 inch, and baked them for about 10-12 minutes. I was finding that cooking them for 8 minutes wasnt enough, and 10 minutes they were still a tiny bit doughy, but I just kept testing them, but didnt really keep track of the time. Thanks so much, and hope you like the pic! :)
