You will like this recipe if you are after a thick, chewy cookie like the ones you can often purchase piled high with frosting that are appealing to the eye. Kids will love these. If you are after a cookie that has good texture and flavor, this isn't your recipe. I added the extra teaspoon of vanilla but that didn't do much for the flavor, which is bland. The texture was chewy -- not bad per se -- just not what I think a delicious sugar cookie should be. Also, the surfaces of my finished cookies were crackled, not good if you plan to use a glaze or thin icing. However, I used 1/2 cup extra sugar so that might be the reason; therefore I didn't take that into consideration when rating but it's worth mentioning for others to consider. You can achieve a thick, tender cookie with just about any sugar cookie recipe if you roll the dough thick and are careful to slightly undercook the cookies, similar to the process in this recipe. But other recipes will give you more texture and more flavor.
