This is the first sugar cookie recipe I've found that I actually like. As per other reviews, they are perfect--sweet & buttery but not overly rich, crisp around the edges & chewy in the middle. Yum.
My only complaint is that they tasted a bit eggy for my liking, but I added the zest of a couple of limes after baking the first pan & they're absolutely gorgeous. No doubt lemon zest would work equally well, but I love the combination of lime and vanilla.
Also, the cookie dough can come up a bit sticky, but there's no need to chill the dough before rolling it into balls. Just put a couple tablespoons of flour into a deep plate and dip your fingertips (dusting off the excess) before shaping the dough. It only takes a tiny bit of flour to stop the dough sticking to your hands, and I find that this works like a charm.
Oh, and I rolled the balls of dough in vanilla demerara sugar to give them a bit of crunch. Perfect.
