This cookies are absolutely delicious and with no chilling time necessary, they can be made quickly. This is now my favorite sugar cookie!
"I just made these with my 4 year old son. We had such a great time. This recipe is basic enough to where I could keep him involved the whole time. We used baking powder, not baking soda, since the original recipe called for it (but the instructions say soda).
I think the cookies are a wee on the dry side, but they're still good. We are going to make frosting next!"

susieq_64 2 months agoI just made these cookies for my husband to do a cookie exchange at work and they turned out great. The dough is so nice to work with and rolls out perfectly. This is my new favorite sugar cookie recipe. They are tasty & so EASY to make.
sugarnospice 5 months agoThis is a great recipe when you follow the directions exactly!! The cookies are delicious, they're crunchy there quick, hold the shape of the cookie cutters. I do have favorite recipes that you refrigerate the dough, but this one is by far the best one when you don't have time to chill it.

Micochsl 8 months agoStarted to make but confused. Recipe calls for 2 teaspoons baking powder, but directions call for baking soda. Which one is correct?
kayla_jackson0812 10 months agoSubstituted syrup for vanilla and added a little more sugar and butter (baking at 3am and didn't have any vanilla) turned out very good.

Overyonder 1 year agoI just made these according to the recipe. I baked them at 185c and they turned out great. I used baking powder and I warmed my butter in the microwave before beating it.
CherishMaeKerr 2 years agoGreat cookies I love that you don't have to wait for them to chill. I don't have much time to wait for things so it's great. I did use the baking powder and kept them thick. Just wish there was an easy icing recipe on here
