Im only 12 years old and I made these at home alone! These are so easy to make and they taste great too. My mom and my whole family LOVE them. So do I.

These are possibly the WORST cookies I have ever made. I made them exactly the way the recipe says, and all I could taste when the cookies were done was butter and flour. They were extremely bland. Everyone that tried them said it was a waste of ingredients. We ended up throwing most of the batter away before baking it. Sure, you could add stuff to make it taste better, but then you would be making a whole different cookie recipe.

Wonderful holiday cookies! Holiday idea split the dough and add a drop of food coloring and mix through the dough. Frost with a light lemon glaze icing with the opposite food coloring. Mom made these for my graduation party using the school colors it was very festive.

So flavorless and disappointing. Won't ever make again.

These are so simple to make. My whole family loved them. They really do melt in your mouth.

These lovely cookies are a special treat with a cup of your favorite tea or flavored coffee. Simple always seems to be delicious. I added a tsp of vanilla extract. Rolled the log in chocolate sprinkles before wrapping and refrigerating. Super :)

After reading all of the reviews I decided to make these (ridiculous late night sweet tooth and hardly any ingredients) I of course added some vanilla extract and some lemon and almond extract. These were incredible!! Definitely a great base recipe as soon as each batch came out of the oven my husband was running by snatching them. Now whenever I make them my husband and dog and kids all sit next to the oven even my mom when she came to visit even though she doesn't care for sweets.

I'm a pretty good cook and I have to say these cookies are pretty good if you don't have hardly any ingredient lying around. I add a dash of vanilla and a tiny bit of salt, but I've had the original recipe too and it's tasty.
