I made a double batch and pressed it into a 9×13 for about 30 minutes for cookie bars. Was a hit with the kids! Delicious!
Yum. Added maple syrup and sprinkled brown turbinado before cooking to garnish.

I had to add a little more flour, but they turnedbout great! Perfect for decorating and icing. Very yummy!

Be careful how long you bake these because they can turn into actual rocks. Not flavorful.

Good recipe but very sweet and too buttery.

Mine turned out flaky so they didn’t look very pretty on top

They didn’t turn out every well and while making it the dough was just falling apart and really floury

These cookies were easy and a hit when I made them for my coworkers. They were not too sweet, as some sugar cookies can be, but they were a little dense. While I may look for a fluffier recipe in the future, these worked just fine and I would have no problem making them again.

Very easy recipe and super delicious! I substituted the all purpose flour and baking powder for self rising flower and it was still great! Recommended!!

I just now made these cookies and they are the bomb. I added a bit more Vanilla extract. My husband says these are the best cookies he's ever had. I will be making more of these delicious things!

These are truly the best sugar cookies I've ever made. I love that they stay soft and fresh for so long.

Delicious! I made them with my three year old, and we didn't wait a day to frost them, we just did it as soon as they felt cool. They turned out great! We used frosting rather than the icing recipe given.
