Mmm-mm-mm! As this recipe's first reviewer I can happily report that it is a winner! These are soft pillows of sugar cookie goodness, frosted with the most luxurious creamy, billowy buttercream. Melt in your mouth, not too sweet and pretty too. Perfect in my mind. Except… it’s a good thing that rolling out sugar cookies isn’t my thing and I had planned to roll these into balls and flatten them all along. This dough is so soft and so gooey that there is no way you could roll it out if you follow the recipe as written. And, since the dough is made with shortening, refrigerating it would do nothing to firm it up. If you are hell bent on rolling these out, you’ll have to add more flour. A better option? Just roll these into about 1” balls, roll in sugar, then flatten to about 1/4” with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. For soft cookies, bake until set but before they begin to turn brown around the edges.
