I'm generally not a great baker. Case in point, this morning I managed to flub up the Betty Crocker bagged sugar cookie mix. Don't ask how. I came on here looking for a substitute to make my nieces for Christmas, and only seeing the rating, without reading the reviews, I made the dough. I followed the recipe to the Tsp, with the exception of an extra tsp of Creme Bouquet, and one of almond extract. I also doubled the recipe. After making the dough and then reading some reviews, I was very worried my dough would be sticky and unmanageable. I don't know what Baking God looked kindly on me today, but I've never had a dough set up more beautifully then this one did. I had no problems with it. I didn't think it was sticky at all. I made sure to incorporate each cup of flour before adding the next. I followed another user's suggestion of rolling the dough out on a parchment sheet, and dusting with powdered sugar instead of flour. I also only cut out circles, since I couldn't find my Christmas cutters. I got exactly 60 cookies with a 2.5" cutter. I rolled the dough to about a 1/4" (and possibly a shade thinner), and cooked them for exactly 6 minutes. I even took them out before I thought I should, which was the absolute perfect amount of time. The taste is perfect, the texture is perfect, I'm over the moon happy with the way these turned out. Thank you!
