The staff at has rewritten this recipe for clarity. It should be much easier to follow. We're sorry for the inconveniences.

I have gotta say-these were not great-if I could I would give them 2 stars and 1/2, but seeing as how there is no 21/2 star, I decided to go with 3. I have this everlasting quest for the best ever drop sugar cookie recipe-chewy,tasty,not too flat,but not too thick, soft like a Subway cookie-and this was definetly not it. It was okay if you are looking for a cakey bisuit type cookie....

After changing the recipe a little, these are the best sugar cookies I have ever had. And very easy to make, don't have to roll them out. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, only put in half of the flour and omit the milk, and put in 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of one. sprinkle sugar and cinnamon or sugar on top or leave them plain, and they are perfect.

These cookies should be called "biscuits". Although they definetly aren't the best cookies, this recipe makes a lightly sweet biscuit that can be eaten with jam for breakfast or a snack. I don't love them but I didn't throw them away, either.

just perfect for a 'light' not too sweet treat. my 7yr old loved them. i cut the sugar in half and added a few spoons of honey. they were like sweet little cookie cakes. thanks!

I mistakenly rated these cookies as good, but I was rating the wrong cookie recipe. I'm sorry about that, but these cookies should be called butter cookies or mini biscuits or something because they weren't really sugar cookies. My husband and son were not very thrilled with them. They are great with coffee, that is true, but not great sugar cookies. Sorry I hope I didn't mislead anyone.

WAY too much flour in this recipe. Outcome was similar to a bread-like cookie.

This is a good basic receipe. The only thing that I would change is instead of white sugar - granulated - I would use confectionare's sugar.
