"Quick and easy sugar cookies. They are really good plain or with candies in them. My friend uses chocolate mints on top, and they're great!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

It's no wonder I like these. Outside of rolling the balls of dough in sugar before baking, this is exactly the same recipe as "Easy Sugar Cookies," also from this site - and I am very fond of that recipe. These cookies are simply the best, and so easy to mix up I had a half recipe done in about the same time it took Hubs to shower and dress! And that included frosting them with "Sugar Cookie Icing," that recipe from this site as well. The cookies are soft yet chewy, with a nice, buttery flavor. Frosted or not, these are a good pick.
This recipe turned out dreadful because of one mistake. It's a near perfect recipe. It comes out very soft (though somewhat crumbly and chalky, but still amazing texture) but it has a taste flaw. The sugar coated outside is delicious but the inside is nasty, not sweet at all. I would suggest at least doubling the amount of sugar in the dough. Other than that it was amazing! Just won't make it again without adding extra sugar for sure. Would be five stars without that problem.
The batter came out beautifully, This the first review I have done.. I think this is a wonderful recipe, only thing I did different is I rolled my dough in Cinnimon, an sugar..an set Oven on 350 ... 375 is just hot for these cookies..I froze half of my batter for later..Thumbs up !!!
this are berry good cookies not to hart to make ,my kids love this cookie
Super easy, delicious, sweet and fluffy.
Perfect for a spur-of-the-moment urge to make cookies.
Tina, maybe the problems you had were due to over-beating the batter, making the cookies too small, or having your oven too hot?
Who knows? All I know is that I followed the directions and my cookies came out picture and palate perfect!
Nice buttery flavor but like the texture and taste of Cracked Sugar Cookies from this site better.
Love this recipe because doesn't require shopping - lots of sugar cookie recipes call for cream of tartar or sour cream, which I don't have in the house regularly. Easy and quick.
Bake at 350 for 10 min.
