katielove7 4y agoBest and easiest recipe! They practically melt in your mouth. Delicious.
Sethlevanen 6y agoI thought they were going to be really good with a 5 star rating, but they were more like a hybrid shortbread cookie. The search continues.
tishalynnh 7y agoI enjoyed making these sugar cookies with my daughter and would make them again for sure.
KatieWI 8y agoSoft and chewy if you don't overbake! Even better with frosting, sprinkles, or however you want to decorate them! The perfect cookie to make with all of your favorite holiday shapes. Take a picture ~ they won't last long!
