MY REVIEW

"Excellent cookie! Was looking for something to bake for lunches, so glad I found this recipe."

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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2014

"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."
