ok, I realized last min that my grandson's football game was just over an hour away; since it's fall in MN I wanted to bring (homemade) cocoa and what would go better than sugar cookies to dip in the cocoa? So, I needed a recipe that was FAST as well as delish so I searched AllRecipes and found this!!! Boy am I glad I did! What a hit! All the ingredients were simple and in my pantry BUT don't let the simplicity fool you - this recipe makes the most fantastic cookies!!! EVERYONE raved about them! I did (by accident) add more vanilla (maybe 1.5 tsp instead of the 1 tsp) than called for - but I'm sure if I hadn't, they'd still be as delicious! I had QUICKLY skimmed some reviews that said they tasted too much of baking powder - or was it soda? Anyway, all I can say is WHAT??? Then, 1 or 2 others said something about making sure the butter was at room temp or the cookies wouldn't taste good???-- hmm, I pulled my butter from the FREEZER, micked it to soften it, and even though some of the butter was still slightly frozen or hard, well-- I just used my mixer to blend the sugar and butter and maybe I did mix it a little longer than if the butter had been room temp, but despite those uncertainties, they turned out F A N T A S T I C!!!! I'm not a fan of sugar cookies, but when I tasted one later that evening, well, I guess I could see why they went so fast and everyone liked them! DO NOT HESITATE TO MAKE THESE, THEY ARE GREAT!!!
