I'm not much of a cook but I was experiencing the cooking bug lately and decided to make something simple. These were easy and quick to prepare and so simple to bake! Even my husband was impressed! I will be sure to stick this on in my family's private cookbook with a special thank you to Brittany for sharing online! These are wonderful and I suggest anyone with kids or just looking for something delicious and quick to give these a try!!
These aren't really cookies, but more like sweet biscuits. Way too floury. And they won't flatten when you bake them, so make sure to flatten them on the tray. With a couple I added shredded coconut into the mix and that made them really good. Otherwise, they had a weird, not very sweet taste. But they were easy to make, not so easy to eat.
You're right about watching them; they will burn in a hurry. It would be better if you rolled the dough out and cut them out. About 1/4-1/2 cup too much flour was called for the recipe. Although, the raw dough was exceptionally good to eat!
I thought these cookies turned out really well! Just make sure you watch them -- nobody likes burnt sugar cookies. The ingredients were simple, and it did not require a lot of utensils and bowls. I give it two thumbs up! It's a keeper!
Very good cookies.
I followed a few of the other reviews, but cut the flour by a lil bit more -- I only used 2 cups of flour.
Cookies seemed to come out well. The dough was delicious raw (can't help it, still a kid at heart).
Baked for about 6 minutes and the cookies were deliciously soft and kinda doughy.
I make these cookies every weekend, and the whole family loves them.
My family loves these cookies. They are NOT a sweet sugar cookie, however. Make sure you use REAL butter (and make sure it's salted, it will bring out the flavor more). The dough is also very crumbly - I do not roll out the dough, but make walnut sized balls and drop them on the cookie sheet. If you find it to be too dry you can always add a touch more milk (or lessen the flour like some others have mentioned). They do come out very moist and don't take long in the oven. If you are looking for an over-the-top sweet cookie, this recipe won't get it. If you are looking for a very moist, buttery cookie, then you've found it.
Not good as a cookie, sorry
