My family absolutely loves these cookies. I also had problems with the dough being sticky, but used a trick my grandmother taught me: I used powdered sugar instead of flour when rolling to keep the cookies sweet.
This recipe is very easy. It's nice not having to wait for dough to chill. I followed the recipe exactly and I had no trouble with sticky dough. Make sure you use softened butter and not melted butter. I also used a little powdered sugar instead of flour when I rolled them out. This cookie should only be used if you're going to ice your cookies because by itself, this cookie is extremely, extremely bland.
I always make these at Christmas. My daughter loves to help! They turn out so thick and soft. They are even better a few days after they're baked. I add an extra egg and 1 tsp. baking powder for fluffy, soft cookies. I also sometimes chill the dough before rolling and cutting out.
This is by far my favorite cut-out cookie recipe. I get many requests for my sugar cookies throughout the year. At times I have added a pinch of nutmeg for a hint of flavor. Also, another good tip for icing these cookies is to melt some white chocolate thinned with a few tablespoons of crisco and then dip the tops of the cookies into the chocolate. Very good and much quicker than using frosting. You won't be dissapointed with this recipe!
These were good...I made them for Valentine's day and cut out hearts. I had to add way too much flour to get them to roll out without sticking though. It was a big mess. I ended up putting the rest of the dough in the fridge over night and they rolled out much easier the next day. The ones without as much flour tasted better.
A very nice cut-out cookie recipe, they stayed quite soft. I have made it with sour cream and plain yogurt as well - no difference whatsoever.
Great Cookie! Very soft and chewy.
These cookies were great in that you don't have to refridgerate the dough before cutting out the cookies so if you decide to make cookies with a little one there's no waiting.They were easy to cut out as well.However,the cookies themselves were very bland.I would make these again because of the ease but would add lemon juice or something for flavour.
