Surefire Sugar Cookies Recipe

"You can invite kids to help make these easy treats," relates Victoria Zmarzley-Hahn of Northhampton, Pennsylvania. "Sometimes I melt white coating instead of chocolate chips because it can be tinted to match the season. And for a shortcut, I purchase sugar cookies from the bakery."

MY REVIEW

"I'm sitting at home in a blizzard. There's something about snow falling that makes me want to bake:) I was so disappointed to find that this recipe called for a tube of refrigerated cookie dough! Who looks for a recipe for sugar cookies when they have a tube of refrigerated cookie dough? I'll keep looking and find a REAL recipe. I wish 'cop outs' like this weren't included when I'm looking for a recipe. It's a waste of baking time!"
