These are amazing sugar cookies, especially if you are looking for a traditional, buttery sweet cookie with no frills. This recipe makes old-fashioned, delicious, soft cookies. One tip in making these come out great: rather than drop them onto your baking sheet using spoons or a scoop as you would with chocolate chip cookies, roll them into 1 1/2 inch balls, then roll through a small bowl of white sugar, then place on the baking sheet. This makes them perfect!
Sorry but no one in my family liked it.
I used 2 tsp orange extract instead of the lemon extract, and these were absolutely great!!!! And so easy to cook!!! They are soft and chewy, and have a nice orange flavor
really liked this one
This is a super-easy version of the sugar cookie recipe that my great-great grandmother brought over from Germany at the turn of the century. Her recipe used lemon and orange zest - this is much easier, and just as tasty!
These cookies were rather good. Not the best I've ever tasted but still not that bad.
These came out very well. I used 2 teaspoons of orange extract instead of adding lemon extract. It was subtly orange flavored. If you're looking for an extreme, I would suggest adding a bit more extract.
These weren't mind-blowing, but they really were very simple and had a lovely, light, yummy flavor. The dough was easy to handle, and because they're so easy to make, I gave them 4 stars.
