these cookies tasted like a vanilla waffer but better. Don't make the balls 1 inch, or they will come out big, The size I make the balls is about a 1/2 inch and they are the size of a waffer cookie everyone likes them. to make them a soft cookie, make the balls 1 inch, set your oven to 350, and dont flatten the balls. I like them better this way.
Very tasty cookies. Followed the recipe very sticky, had to add about 1/2 cup more flour. Didn't cook in 8 to 10 minutes but much longer. Not crispy. Won't make these again. I'll stick to my chocolate chip cookies which never fail
I made these because some of the reviews stated they are like Nilla wafers. I do not believe this to be the case. I made one inch balls and pressed them flat. They spread quite a bit, but not to a point where they were crisp in the middle. Perhaps I should have left them in the oven longer? They were golden brown around the edges when I took them out. All this being said, they are great sugar cookies! I used "Vanilla Bean Crush" vanilla from King Arthur Flour.
I made these cookies for a bake sale and they were very good but for some reason they were not very crispy. I was expecting them to be a little crispier than they were, but all in all the recipe was good and I will make them again.
This was a great treat! They were very yummy, which was surprising because I don't normally like sugar cookies! I followed one suggestion to make sandwich cookies with the sides dipped in sprinkles, and I made some with vanilla frosting, some with frosting and sprinkles, and left some plain. They turned out really cute and festive looking!
I make this all the time, omiting the vanilla and using peppermint flavoring instead.
YUM! My family loved them. Next time we're going to make frosting sandwiches, rolling the sides in sprinkles. Crispiest while still warm.
Really wonderful, ligth, crisp cookies.
