    Great recipe! This one is a keeper. Rolled out and baked perfectly. My oven, I baked at 350 for 10 min. Only a slight golden around the edges was plenty. Any longer and theyd have been over cooked. Our decorating skills were lacking tho!

    These were great! I took other's recommendations and doubled the time. To make decorating easier, I used bottled Wilton cookie icing found at Michael's and other stores. They tasted great!

    Chilled the dough before rolling it out. Everything held its shape really well. Taste was really good. Keeping this recipe for future cookies.

    The recipe didn’t tell me when to add the baking powder, so I put it in with the flour. They turned out pretty good.

    This is the most delicious, easiest sugar cookie recipe I have ever used. They’re super soft and my high school students who I baked them for went on and on about how good they are. I used sanding sugar on top before I baked them rather than frosting after.

    They turned out perfect! This will be my only sugar cookie recipe from now on. I was beginning to think I would never be able to make cut out cookies. Thank you so much for this recipe. And my family thanks you too!
