"These are the best sugar cookies. I always keep a roll in the freezer in case I have company coming over on short notice. They are great plain or frosted. They are a softer sugar cookie, which I love. I usually bake for 6-7 minutes. I also use this recipe for my sugar cookie cut-outs at Christmas, but they do have a tendency to spread, so you don't get those really clean edges."

"This recipe came to my rescue when I had to bake sugar cookies and I did not have on hand unsalted butter for the sugar cookie recipe I usually follow. I found this recipe and it worked like a charm!
