Aloha! I concur with Mimi3 and several others... what a total waste of ingredients and time. My dough was far too sticky and I had let it sit in the fridge overnight. It stuck to the rolling pin and was so fragile that the tips of my cookies broke off before I got them to the cookie sheet. I tasted the finished product and it was so awful, I think cardboard would have better flavor. I baked two sheets of these and ended up dumping the entire contents in the trash. I am still shocked at how many people rate this recipe so high. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THESE!

THIS IS THE WORST recipe for sugar cookies I have EVER made!!! Do NOT make this because you use good ingredients but 5 cups of flour???? That's all you taste is the flour!!!!!!!!! YUCK!!!!!!!! They don't ever taste sweet no matter how much sugar you put on top of the cookie!!!!!!!!!!!

Your recipe calls for salt. When baking sweets, I do not add more salt by using salted butter. Unsalted butter is for baking sweets.

Typically if the recipe does not specify, you use salted butter.

Made these this morning. Followed directions and made the best sugar cookies ever. Will definitely be added to my Christmas cookie favorites this year.

I freeze my cookies dough in zip bags, laid flat, then thaw them, & cut them into cubes, no scooping or rolling in balls, saves a lot of time. I make up all of my dry mixes a head of time too, that saves time also. I do a lot of baking for Christmas & give it all away as gifts. Hope this info helps
