"These are the perfect cookies for decorating. They are nice and soft with a great light flavor that goes well by itself or with frosting."

"Nice soft texture and classic sugar cookie flavor. I like a more buttery cookie, but this is what you expect when you bite into a sugar cookie. I decorated mine with colored sugars."
