These cookies are very bland and do not taste good at all. It is a simple recipe and the cookies are basically fool proof, but they really do taste "empty" and as the other reviewer mentioned, you can taste the shortening. I like sugar cookies normally, so that is not the issue. I first baked them without salt as other reviewers recommend and thought perhaps that was why they were flavorless so I did a quick second batch with salt; which were just as bland. Perhaps almond flavoring or coconut, but then that would not be this recipe.

It could have five stars if they werent so advice, skip the salt and they should be fine :)

my girls loved these cookies! I wanted to make sugar cookies, but didn't have much regular sugar left, just brown. found this recipe and it was a hit!

These are awesome. Mind you I had lard not shortening. I added 1/2tsp. of cinnamon & my 1yr old kept making "mmm" sounds while eating them. I'll up the cinnamon next time I make'em. With sugar cookies, I usually bake some right away & the rest I usually wrap them into a tube & instead of rolling & flattening them to cut them into shape, I just slice them & while they're all round I cook every single bit of them. The recipe's a keeper.
