"I brought this recipe with me to Georgia when I moved from Michigan most Southerners love it"
"Delicious! The dough is slightly fluffy so I was able to mix with a hand mixer.I used a small ice cream scoop to make the perfect size for little hands and ended up with 7 dozen.I used "real" pure butter, Kerrygold.Because they have a slight crispy texture and remind me of Pecan Sandies...My next batch, I will be adding pecan bits."
"Excellent cookie! Was looking for something to bake for lunches, so glad I found this recipe."
"I liked these cookies. They have a very light texture and a delicate taste. I doubled the amount of vanilla extract and rolled the dough balls in sugar before baking, however, to accentuate the taste."
"I made these cookies exactly following the recipe. I didn't like them. They are very light and I didn't think they had enough flavor. I am going back to my Gramma's sugar cookie recipe."
