The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I cook from scratch a lot because I have a kid with Crohn's Disease and I'm not sure why we're using 4 whole eggs here unless we're just making a soft cookie. This isn't a good rolled cookie recipe at all--too much work! Soft cookies, well, probably a very good recipe. Waaaay too sticky to make good production. One shouldn't have to chill and flour THIS much with a rolled dough. Needless to say, they turned out fine, but too much work on the tail-end. I'd rather put in the work mixing and getting the chemistry right in the beginning. See Eileen's Gingerbread Cookies--a very good example of recipe that makes dough that rolls and cuts well, and comes out firm on the outside yet soft on the inside--prefect for kids.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
I bake a lot from scratch because we have an 8 year old with Crohn's Disease (intestinal inflammation). Food doesn't change the disease, as in Celiac, but it reduces the symptoms. He's lactose intolerant because of the disease (among other things). He's sensitive to some spices too. He does very well with ginger and it helps his belly!! Nevertheless, I'm always looking for kid-friendly, simple, and Crohn's friendly foods and this recipe is it. Thus, I reduce the cloves etc. and bump-up the cinnamon and ginger. I use SmartBalance lactose-free butter. I LOVE basic recipes that allow me to make these changes. I like how you used the egg yolk to get the consistency right--the cookies have the potential to be soft--but not cakey or goopy. You indeed don't need the egg white as I've seen as a mistake in other recipes. 50/50 on the powder and soda, very nice. I bake for 8 minutes and they are PERFECT! Also, this dough works great with parchment paper and doesn't stick or require flouring. I live in Germany as well, and I'd say they rival what you'd find in our markets. THANKS for posting a great recipe, it's helping a kid with a disease that is not so great...
