This is an excellent sugar cookie recipe that I have been using over a year. I figured it was time to write my own review after reading some of the recent surprising negative reviews. My kids always request this cookie for their holiday party snacks at school. There is definitely not too much flour in this recipe. If you were to use any less you would be left with a gooey mess that wouldn't be able to be rolled out. I have made this recipe so many times and never once did I have a batch where the dough turned out crumbly. The directions say to use softened butter and I place the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds to basically have it melted before starting on the recipe (maybe others don't have their butter softened enough to begin with). Next, I add all the ingredients but the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and cream them. Then I add half the flour (2 cups) and mix again. After that is well blended I add the remaining 2 cups of flour with the other dry ingredients and mix. Personally, I like the nutmeg in these cookies and don't find it to be too much at all and find it hardly noticeable. Also, I saw someone mention these don't brown up on top. I have never wanted my sugar cookies to brown up on top and have been known to take them out a little early to make sure they don't. I use the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe from this site by JBS Box and it works excellently with these cookies. I highly recommend this recipe!
