"This is my favorite, go-to sugar cookie recipe. The cookies are soft and delicious. I like to glaze them with a simple confectioners sugar glaze - they don't need it because they are delicious as is - but it's nice to add the extra pop of color with the glaze. Great recipe!"
"One word: fabulous!"
"OH! So good, buttery & sweet."
"Extremely good and easy! The only thing I changed, was to use almond extract in place of the vanilla extract. Awesome!"
"This recipe was easy and great. My daughter made them over the weekend. They were gobbled right up!"
