Really impressed. I'm a chef by trade and do a lot of baking, this is my first ever attempt at sugar cookies and considering i just ate 4 of them without frosting, ok 5...maybe 6, the recipe speaks for itself, these are not generally made in Australia for holiday occasions, but my husband is American and he always tells me how good his mum's are. They are a little chewy, sweet and have a beautiful vanilla flavour. I added 1 extra cup of sugar and 1 extra teaspoon of vanilla. I made the dough at 8am, it's 11 am now and I have some iced. I just couldn't wait overnight, I'm too impatient. I chilled the dough for an hour, then cut what I needed and chilled the cut cookies before cooking. Once out of the oven i let them stand for 20 minutes before popping them in the fridge so I could decorate a few. They hold their shape, and didnt crumble at all.
I'm looking forward to baking the next 100, it seems there is a lot of dough still in the fridge.
I did read another review that said ' mix the flour with a spoon, not the electric mixer' this is a must, otherwise I'm sure i would have crumbly tough cookie dough.
Thank you for making my first attempt at sugar cookies an easy one.
