i thought i found the perfect sugar cookie recipe,the dough was very easy to work with,and is good for using cookie cutters,it holds it shape well,but it tasted like flour and butter cookies,i cut the recipe in half(54 cookies)i added twice as much white sugar,a good cookie to decorate

What disappointed me the most about this recipe, were the photos. One would assume that it is perfect for cut-out sugar cookies since the photos are all of cut-outs, but not the case. This recipe is way too sticky for cut-outs so please change the photos so someone else isn't mistaken like I was.

This has always been my favorite sugar cookie recipe for many years. The orginial name was "white sugar cookies" The last time I made them I used the prepacked "butter flavor crisco" This makes this cookie even richer. I also use purchased sugar and cinnamon mixture. Almond and lemon extracts make these have a different flavor. They are addicting and don't last long in my house. Oh by the way, these cookies spread as they cook.

I was asked to make 100 sugar cookies for Vacation Bible School. I looked up recipes on the internet and chose this one. It was marvelous! I got several comments on them! Thank you for a very easy, and very good cookie, that I will definately make again.

Good cookies! I bought a Texas-shaped cookie cutter and had to use it! Followed the recipe but subbed almond ex. for vanilla. Thanks for the post! We had alot of fun making these.

I made these yesterday for our American Girl Club tea party. I saved some for my family. My husband kept coming into the kitchen to claim another one and said: These are addicting. My youngest daughter who doesn't like cookies ate 3 or 4. Today they asked me to bake them again. Very delicious to taste and easy to bake.

The cookies taste GREAT. I don't recommend this one for cookie cutters. The dough is stickier than I expected. You can use cutters if you refrigerate for about an hour.

I have made a lot of different sugar cookie recipes. I decided to try this one today and absolutely loved it. This will be the one I use from now on. I did let my kids add M&M's to half of them.
