Nice ‘n’ Soft Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 5 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 3 dozen
The recipe worked well and my cutouts were great but the taste of these cookies by themselves is horrible. It’s like biting into a cookie with too much flour and salt. I’ve been baking for years and confection is my forte but these cookies did not make my list. I will ice one and see if it changes anything because plain my dog wouldn’t eat it.
I have been using this recipe since my kids were old enough to sit in their highchairs and decorate cookies. It is stable enough to not break and it is a delicious cookie. I follow the notes for making self rising flour. Also, I use the dipping method to measure flour, so it is fluffed up a bit. Have never had a problem with the dough being too dry and crumbly.
This is an awful sugar cookie recipe. I agree with other reviewers the dough is so dry and crumbly. Its missing something. Still tried to cook it but could only squeeze it in to a ball and it didnt taste like a sugar cookie. Will not make this again.
The best sugar cookies!!! I used the editor's note to get the flour so I didn't need to buy a whole thing of self raising flour. Otherwise everything was followed as written. A great frosting too that sets well! Will be making every year!
I've been using this recipe for years with wonderful results. I do, however, roll out my dough a bit thicker than the recipe suggests, as I find this produces a guaranteed soft and tender cookie. Dough is easy to handle and very forgiving, and the re-rolled scraps even make delicious cookies.
These cookies are delicious. Those people who didn't get a soft cookie did something wrong. I followed the recipe exactly. Yummy. Maybe you didn't soften the butter???
These were not anything like they should be. Wasted a bunch of ingredients. Not sure why some of us had the same issues, and others liked it. It was almost like there was a binding ingredient missing. After a few failures I added some oil to get the consistency I need to do anything with them. Moving on to another one...this one is a no go.....
I love soft chewy cookies and these are the best sugar cookies I've ever had. They are a Christmas tradition in our house.
Love these sugar cookies. This is my go to cugar cookie recipe! Everyone loves these with a little buttercream frosting on them.
The first batch I made, burned; The second batch was only air and super crunchy......I have lost 15 cookies so far..... I just hope that this next one isn't another waste....EACH BATCH IS SIX COOKIES SINCE I AM USING A TOASTER OVEN.......
