These are some of the BEST COOKIES I've ever tasted and I am extremely picky. Like the description says, crunchy on the outside and very chewy on the inside. Easy, simple, buttery but not greasy or heavy. I've made these many times and I have to make small batches because my boyfriend inhales them. Friends from France, the US and Argentina tasted them. Palates from around the world raved! People cursed after they took their first bite, they were that good. I make a few big so I get a few soft cookies in the batch for those who like them. The rating is for the recipe as it is written and because my friend had the ingredients on hand. Nonetheless, since then I've made them with butter and a touch less sugar and they're phenomenal. I tend to just measure the 2cups sugar and take out a few tbsp and I don't roll the cookies in sugar before baking. Some mentioned the dough being sticky. This hasn't bothered me but just to see, once I added 1/2 cup flour and they were easier to handle without any noticeable difference in taste/texture once baked. A note of caution, 1 minute makes a big difference when baking these so check on them or take one tray out at 8min and another tray at 10min and see what you prefer. I bake mine 11 minutes with the bottoms clearly golden. Never trying another sugar cookie recipe, these are PERFECT. Follow the recipe if you want, make a few changes if you like, the cookies magically have always come out great. 10 stars CindyAnn!
