I have made this recipe twice, and I completely agree with one reviewer who said that the secret is the butter. If you want this recipe to turn out right, you have to make sure the butter is completely soft...if it isn't, the dough will be very dry. The first time I made these cookies, I had completely softened the butter on the counter, but the second time the butter wasn't completely soft, and the dough became VERY crumbly. The cookies still taste good, but the consistency of the dough makes it challenging if the butter isn't soft enough, especially if you're going to roll the dough balls in sugar. Also, to add to the flavor, I used the one teaspoon of vanilla, per the recipe, but also added about 3/4 teaspoon of orange extract. It really brings out the flavor of any sugar cookie recipe. Overall, this is a great basic sugar cookie recipe - not too sweet, not too buttery, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. I will definitely be coming back to this recipe!
