These cookies are awesome, they are easier to roll if you put them in the fridge for a few hours:)

Good, a bit underdone But easily fixed I put them in for a couple more minutes. So great that I don’t have to refrigerate them.

Perfect cut out cookie and love that I didn’t have to refrigerate them before rolling out
Mary Cardenas 25 Nov 2017
Wonderful! I did have the same problem others have mentioned with the dough being crumbly. I just put in another egg and it was perfect. Great taste and texture. I blinked and they were gone. Thank you!

You have to roll them out quite thick, and they bake between eight and nine minutes. You need to roll out the dough into small pieces and almost individually cut each biscuit and roll again because the dough is so crumbly. Leaving out the Almond essence makes it taste quite buttery. My son loves them!

It was good I have not made sugar cookies before and it was really good
Samantha D. 26 Oct 2017
This is a perfect recipe for cut out cookies. Make sure to not over bake, and they will be soft and delicious

This recipe was really good! I didn't have any almond extract so I went on without it and it still tasted amazing! Just make sure that you properly flour your work area and rolling pin because it can get a little sticky. I am definitely going to make this again!
Chloe 5 Jun 2017
Good, but I didn't have any almond extract so I just took it out and they still turned out really good and I loved them so much that I had to make more the next day. Over all it was a great recipe and I would recommend it for any occasion

They were Delicious! Easy! Over all great recipes! I am very inexperienced at baking & I was over the moon happy with the results! This is a great confidence booster especially after many epic fails!
