Oh my god, these are the TASTIEST sugar cookies I have ever tried. And that's saying a lot. My mother and I used to make sugar cookies every year for Christmas, from all different recipes, but they were never really "special." These are special and then some! I'm sending the recipe (updated with another reviewer's suggestions, including 8oz of cream cheese instead of 3 - yum!) to my mother as a Christmas gift, along with some of the finished product. When not overbaked, these are the most tender, luxurious sugar cookie. The mouthfeel alone is incredible. Also, for those who found this recipe bland, I suggest upping the almond extract to 1 tsp. It makes a lot of difference. EDIT: Forgot to add, chilling them in the fridge may not work for some folks, like me, who hate sticky dough and the extra time and attention it can take. Freeze it. Honest to god, whether you roll it up in a cylinder or roll it out in sheets, toss it in the freezer and it's a dream to work with.
