We LOVE these No Roll Sugar Cookies. Followed recipe until the strange instruction:'Dip glass in white sugar & press balls flat.' I did NOT do that. Sugar does not adhere to a dry surface so that instruction would be pointless. Instead, I used the bottom of the drinking glass only to flatten the cookies evenly on the cookie sheet. I took my fingers & wet them under the faucet, 'painted' a glaze of water on the tops of the flattened cookies so the sugar would stick (don't know if that's necessary, but I did it), then just sprinkled a bit of white sugar according to our taste on top of flattened cookies. Set the timer for 8 minutes & when the timer went off I stood at the oven & checked the cookies often until they were starting to 'tan' around the edges. I don't have an oven light so I use a flashlight to get a quick look before shutting the oven door so the heat doesn't escape. Just a tip. This No Roll Sugar Cookie recipe leaves you room to sweeten it with as much or little topping / frosting as you want which is very smart. When I made a 2nd batch from the same dough that was refrigerated the dough wanted to stick to the bottom of the glass. I did the first batch of cookies that did not stick with dough I'd just made that was room temp. Reviews also mentioned 'you can't roll out these cookies'. Um. Hence the title: 'NO Roll Sugar Cookies.' This is our Sugar Cookie recipe from now on!
