Must agree with everyone else! These sugar cookies are fantastic! I followed the suggestions of others and substituted the 2 cups white sugar for 1 cup white sugar + 1 cup powdered sugar, and increased the vanilla to 2 tsp. I also didn't have any lemon extract, so I used lemon juice. These cookies have the perfect amount of sweetness and the lemon adds a really nice flavor. I usually have trouble with rolled cookies, but found this dough to be incrediblly easy to work with. I refrigerated the dough for several hours and then only worked with half at a time, leaving the remainder in the fridge. I rolled out the dough on a floured silicone baking mat, and found it really easy to turn the cutout onto my hand and put on the cookie sheet without damaging the shape of the cookie. I had to increase baking time to 11-12 minutes. LOVE these cookies! They are sturdy enough that you don't have be really gentle with them, but also tender in the middle.
