splash of milk
Loved these cookies. Were easy to make and roll out. I added one egg to the recipe, but followed the rest of it. The cookies were very moist and the icing was great. Plan to use this icing on cakes as well. Very, very yummy and my kids were able to help with the whole thing.
I followed the recipe and found I had to add more milk in order for it to become doughy because of the excess amount of flour included. I don't think I'll use this one again.
very good recipe i had to add a little bit of water to make more of a dough. I also added one egg.For flavor I added some pumpkin spice inside and pumpkin spice/sugar for the top. plain ones with mint chocolate chips on top were awsome.my 9 year old loved them. Thanks for the great recipe!
Great recipe- ity definitely rivals regular cout out cookies! I added an egg to the recipe and the result was extra moist cookies that remained soft even days later. They seemed better rolled out on the thick side.
I made this recipe for a "girls day" my 7 year old had. I made a batch and a half and there was plenty of dough for the 6 kids to roll out. I added 2 medium eggs to the batter, as noted by other reviewers. The dough was tasty and easy to work with and the cookies have stayed nice and soft. I skipped the frosting (too many hands in the kitchen this time around) so no comment on that. I made the dough a day in advance, rolled it out on 5 sheets and left it in the freezer till we were ready to use it - worked great!
These cookies were great. Unlike most cookies these were still soft and moist the next week. I even warmed 1/2 of the milk just enough to disolve a teaspoon of instant coffee and added it to 1/2 the dough to give a coffee taste, since I am a coffee junkie lol and they were great too.
Instead of milk I added 1 cup sour cream. I also increased the vanilla to 1 Tbls. instead of 1 tsp. I added cinnamon to the roll out flour. I did not have to chill at all. these rolled out great.
My nine year old son is a budding chef who never likes to follow recipes. He made these cookies AWESOME! Best cookies I've ever had in my mouth! He added an egg, more milk, some peanut butter, marshmallow creme, and dark chocolate chunks until the dough was soft. He didn't make the frosting and didn't chill them first. They are unbelievable!!! We made 36 cookies.
