1 1/2 teaspoons
heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons
packed brown sugar
Iv'e made this recipe twice now. The first time I followed the refridgerator cooling time exactly, but the second time I tried only keeping the dough in the fridge for an hour or so and ya know what? It came out exactly the same! I though four hours had seemed a wee bit too long, and it was. Same results, same taste in way less than half the time! I do add two cups of brown sugar however because I'm a brown sugar junkie and a flavor of brown sugar lessens so much after baking with it, so two cups seems to be satisfactory. I know it seems like a lot of sugar, but it's soooooo yummy. Also try adding chocolate chips for some really yummy choco-chip cookies!
This recipe was ok, but A little bland. I added white sugar in with the recipe and also sprinkled white sugar to the tops of these cookies. Just to give them some better flavor. I will continue my search for a better sugar cookie recipe.
I thought this was great. The cookies were moist and chewy and stayed thusly for several days. I added a 1/2 cup of white sugar, substituted half/half for the water and heavy cream, and did not refridgerate the dough. Otherwise I prepared the recipe exactly as stated, and it was grand. My family couldn't get enough of these cookies!
I agree with another viewer - they're not sweet enough. I like things not tooo sweet, but these tasted too "healthy" - double the brown sugar and use TWO pinches of salt to bring out the flavor. These would be good as thumprint (jam) cookies, or with a 1/2 tsp cinnamon added.
The texture was nice, very buttery.
This dough was easy to make, and easy to work with. Not too sticky at all. I made huge cutouts and they didn't dry out in the oven, get too crispy, or burn. They needed some frosting to be perfect (in my opinion). I used to sugar cookie icing, yellow sugar, and mini chocolate chips on mine to try to make sunflower cookies.
It was a good cookie, I would recomend using a bit more flour otherwise, it was a little hard to roll.
These are delicious! But, it is the only cookie that I can't stop eating so I won't allow myself to make them anymore.
I really liked these, but they were too rich for my husband.
