These were very good - followed recipe.

I must have done something wrong. I make a lot of cookies, and I found these dull.

Did not crack at all, just flattened and browned unevenly. Oh well.

These are delicious; I've made three batches in two weeks. The last batch, I added a tsp of almond extract and only 1/2 tsp of vanilla. My family loved them

Yum! I was looking for a simple soft sugar cookie...this is it! As others, I did not dip in water. I used Florida Crystals for dipping which gave the cookies just a touch of sparkle. Can't wait to share them!
