Great, delicious cookies! I just made another batch for a Christmas cookie exchange and they came out perfect! I did decrease the flour by about 1/4 cup and I almost never bake with butter, but I do use a high end baking margarine. It's never failed me yet! So if you like butter - go for it! But if not, know that using a good quality baking margarine will yield excellent results too. Since the margarine is salted, I omit the extra salt called for in this recipe. (Something I do for almost all recipes, really. You rarely need to add more if your butter or margarine is salted.) I also often use almond extract in my sugar cookies for that extra little something that everyone seems to love. And lastly, for the sugar in this recipe, I use 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar. It makes the cookies a bit softer and even easier to roll out.
