"I normally make sugar cookies, I tried this recipe, oh yeah, home-run, right out of the park will make again and again, I wondered about the yeast just put it in dry after mixing the dry ingredients, perfect, I call it 'Crazy Good!'"

"Dont overbake. Chill dough both before and after rolling. Use more than stated cinnamon mixture otherwise there will be some left over."

"Does the recipe really mean to use active dry yeast? I'm not sure how it would dissolve? Is this a mistake and it should be instant?"

"Very good cookies! Turned out just like the picture. I had to chill the dough because of being short on time and rolled out the next day. I rolled them between two sheets of parchment paper. No problem rolling at all, went very fast. Will definitely make again."

"I made a batch for a cookie exchange, and quickly realized that I needed to make another for home! I especially liked the hint of orange. I did have to make double the glaze, though."
