The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
These were okay but weren't sweet enough and tasted kind of bland like they needed more sugar. I tried altering this by adding some more sugar to the recipe and it messed up the consistency of the dough. Would probably be better with a cream cheese frosting, or something else to give them more kick! I REALLY wanted to like these, was kind of disappointed due to the high ratings!

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I don't sift and only chilled for an hour. I also microwaved the shortening in a glass bowl rather than heat over the stove. They turned out perfect, including the crackles! I'm not a big fan of molasses, but these were very good. You have to put them in a container or baggie with some bread immediately after cooling or they will harden very quickly. Yummy, and they look fantastic with red and green sprinkles!

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
These cookies are DELICIOUS and easy to make! I made only a 1/2 batch to try them out, and will definitely be adding this to my Christmas baking list. The cookie all by itself is a great texture and taste, I will use this cookie as a base for future thumbprint recipes. I did add a little bit more rum than the recipe called for and sprinkled a fair amount of nutmeg over the finished cookie (I'm sure it would be considered more than a 'pinch') and it was fantastic. The extra rum isn't necessary, but I wanted a strong rum flavor. YUM YUM!!
