    Made these over the holidays & they turned out great! They have a great flavor and the cookies are fluffy after baking. Everyone liked them soo much we did not have enough to even frost and decorate! This will be my 'go to' recipe for sugar cookies! Thanks for sharing it!

    I like them soft so I take them out while they are still a little puffy looking. I hope you enjoy. I am sure I will, I like them soft myself. JJ

    Your cookies were a big hit!! The recipe was easy to follow and the cookies turned out just fantastic!! Where in N.J. is your husband from? My husband, Jim, is from the Toms River area, I always here about the cranberry bogs and all the muscles and Mystic Island, I could go on and on!! He hasn't been back up there since around 92' or so, so I'm sure nothing is like it was when he was younger, his brother Bobby still lives up there in Mystic Island area (I think), he's a chef and everytime he visits, we get these huge, long, incredibly delicious hot dogs and nice huge bagels which I can't find anywhere down here in Georgia!! Well enjoyed chatting and again, thanks for the new family sugar cookie recipe!!

    Hey! This one is not to crispy unless you leave it in the oven a little longer. I like them soft so I take them out while they are still a little puffy looking. I hope you enjoy!
