sifted confectioners' sugar
Overall, a very tasty and tender butter cookie. Also, because of so few ingredients, it is quick to mix. The dough was a little difficult to work with -- so I cheated and rolled it out between two sheets of waxed paper, set it on a cookie sheet, froze it for about 20 minutes, then cut out the frozen dough. (I do this with almost all cut out cookie dough. It works great and the cookies don't lose their shape!) Since I used small cutters, I reduced the baking time to 10 minutes.
Didn't care much for this cookie. Bland taste and I followed the recipe as written. I won't make these again, its not a sugar cookie, not a butter cookie, something in between. Needs a flavor boost for sure.
Nice texture and taste. I found the dough, in the original recipe a bit too crumbly. With an extra Tablespoon of milk and an extra 1/4 cup of butter, it was perfect! Thank you for sharing your recipe, Jelly. I'll be making this one for every cut-out cookie holiday, and maybe some in between!
Very easy to make, had to have my oven on 300 or the bottoms got too brown. Very tasty cookies and rolled out great. Keep in mind when you put them on the cookie sheet, they don't spread, so you can put more on. MY KIDS AND FRIENDS RAVED ABOUT THE TASTE!!! I added 1 extra tsp. of vanilla. GREAT RECIPIE, THANKS!!
these were so odd ... as others have noted, not sweet but strangely addicting. i added some almond extract, which i think helped the flavor. my husband ate them up, and the man is not a sweet-eater, so there's that. i would definitely chill the dough before rolling it out.
THANK YOU, JELLY!!!!!
This really is the best cut-out recipe on the planet!! I have tried countless recipes for dough you don't have to refrigerate first. These are great!!!!!
I put the dough on parchment paper, put plastic wrap on top of the dough and then roll, so no need for extra flour.
These are good and SO easy! If you use a stand mixer, you won't have to knead, and if you roll it out and bake it on parchment, there's almost no mess! We loved them with Sugar Cookie Icing on this site. Professional-looking results!
If you are looking for a delicately tastey, white, soft but yet crisp, cut-out then this is for you. I was hoping for more cake-like cookies so this is not for me. Dough was easy to work w/ even w/out chilling. GREAT FOR USE WITH KIDS!!-no raw eggs so its a tastey and safe dough to eat :)
A nice cookie!
