Kind of dry taste like a cinnamon sugar biscuit

Followed the recipe exactly - way too much butter and not very flavorful.

i think it was gross. Just too much butter and flour. I think that the flour could have been 1 cup and the butter is just war too much.

I I didn't add as much butter and it still worked. I think that this recipe is easy and not as many ingredients

Pretty good recipe. I did half butter half shortening. It was very good. I also added salt because super sweet cookies need salt to balance it. They taste a little too floury, but in the end good. I couldn't get them golden brown enough without over cooking the cookie. Cooked for 15 mins at 350. It is quite humid here. I also did not have to add any extra flour and the cookies were not sticky at all. I didn't even need the flour to roll them into balls. Thanks ICBINB! Edit to add. I also let the cookies chill in the fridge for about 20 mins before putting on the sheet pan. Made two sheets of 12 cookies.

I used margarine, and the end result was very good. There were some minor setbacks, though. It never said to soften the butter, and I tried to mix it with an electric mixer. It was very hard, and it splattered everywhere, but I made it. Then, the finished dough was much like a sticky cream, so I added 2 extra tablespoons of flour into it, and I honestly think that saved it. It was still a bit sticky, but much thicker and easier to handle. The rolling was easy, and the cooking time was perfect. I recommend using this recipe to make snickerdoodles, even if you don't have the certain butter.
