    Best sugar cookies I’ve made so far! I followed the recipe to a tee, but I baked the cookies for 10-11 minutes because I made them a bit big.

    Substituted sugar for splenda and they cook faster on the outside. Very simple recipe to use.

    Perfect!! I did everything the recipe required however I added more baking powder, not sure if that's the reason for not staying soft. Nonetheless they were delicious and my picky eater agreed.

    Subbed vanilla extract for Bailey’s Irish Cream ecause I didn’t realize I was out- worked perfectly- didn’t measure but maybe about 2.5 shots. Overall they turned out great, using 1 tsp to measure the dough made around 50 cookies. Flatten before putting in the oven.

    Cookies tasted good but the dough was to dry and crumbly to roll into sugar before baking. needs some liquid to make it more malleable.

    I had a very difficult time missing the dough with a hand mixer. Especially when gradually adding the flour. The cookies never turned brown around the edges even when baked for 3 minutes longer than suggested time. I won’t be making these again!
