Tasted more like a shortbread cookie. That may have been my fault, though; I used stevia instead of regular sugar. I'll try making it again soon with sugar and see if it turns out any better.

A wonderful crisp sugar cookie. Delicate, yet has a nice snap to it when you bite into it. I rolled the dough into a large rectangle and using a pastry wheel, cut into squares, then pricked the tops to look like shortbread. I sprinkled turbinado sugar on the tops before baking. These will puff up a bit, so make sure to follow the directions and roll 1/8 inch thick.

I guess these are ok for a cookie to decorate but the flavor is bland & cookie isn't crisp it's tough. No one ate these cookies.

My very first cut-out cookies and they are great . . . thin and crisp and with such a gorgeous delicate flavor that just melts in the mouth and dazzles the senses . . . thank you

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.

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.
