My grandmother always had sugar cookies in her pantry, and I now regularly bake these wonderful cookies to share with friends. We grandchildren would empty that big jar quickly because those cookies were the best! —Evelyn Poteet, Hancock, Maryland

I made these cookies a long time ago, then lost the Taste of Home magazine that the recipe was in. They were so good that they're still on my mind, years later. It occurred to me to check the internet! So glad I've found them. They're delicious.

MY REVIEW

After the first time we were hooked on "Crisp Sugar Cookies." Because there's just 2 of us, we make a half-sized batch.

They're good for an every-day snack and they're great for company, too. These cookies are terrific.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 19, 2009

These cookies are very good! I rolled them pretty thin so they are very crisp. I may frost them next time and see how that works out. This recipe is a keeper.
