These cookies are soft, chewy and taste as good as they sound. The first time I baked them, I took them to an aunt's yard sale. Now they’re my go-to for any special event. —Samantha Gstalder, Montoursville, PA
Granny always had a batch of these delicious, crispy cookies waiting for us at her house. When I miss her more than usual, I make these cookies and let the aroma fill my house and heart. —Valerie Hudson, Mason City, Iowa
I've been making these sugar cookies for about 40 years for my children and now grandchildren and all their friends, too. I make about 20 trays a year to give away to trick-or-treaters. —Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia
I've used this recipe for almost 40 years and love it because it's a little different than most. My mom always made Santa cookies, and we'd put them into little clear bags tied with ribbon to hang on the tree.—Ann Bush, Colorado City, Colorado
Decorated sugar cookies for dessert delighted the young dinosaur lovers at our party. I had a lot of fun frosting the shapes and decorating them with mini-chocolate chip "eyes" and colorful candy spots to give them character.

Although they take some time to decorate, I enjoy giving these cookies to family and friends. You can also make them for Christmas using different cookie cutters. —Alison Benke, Chetwynd, British Columbia
I love to see the end of a project, like this Christmas cottage—but my favorite part is the process. It's fun to watch the gingerbread, icing and candy decorations come together creatively. —Johanna Rosson, Fort Hood, Texas
