These easy-to-make cookies simply melt in your mouth! I've passed the recipe around to many friends. After I gave the recipe to my sister, she entered the cookies in a local fair and won the "best of show" prize! —Sylvia Ford, Kennett, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2014

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.

I personally do not like sugar cookies, but i get asked to make these all the time. My family loves it if u smash the dough with a glass covered with sugar

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 31, 2014

These were tasteless with a really dry texture. It was like eating a spoonful of flour from a spoon. Good thing I only made 1/2 a batch. They were all thrown in the trash. (The dog didn't even finish the one I gave him). I even tried pressing the tops with extra sugar to add *some* flavor. Still tasteless.
