Mom’s Soft Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 7-1/2 dozen
Excellent cookie recipe. Chilling is very important. Use flour when rolling. No problem using cookie cutters if you do that.
This cookie is delicious. But it is in no way suitable for cutting out using cookie cutters. I chilled it for 48 hours and it was a sticky mess. I had to add flour just to get some cut out. Plus the dough puffs and the cookies lose definition. However, I got tired of trying to cut them out and just rolled balls, flattened slightly with a glass, sprinkled with sugar, and they spread out into perfectly acceptable round cookies. No need to cut out. They do taste slightly eggy; IF I ever make again I think I would use one or two less egg yolks.
I have been making these for years. You must chill them overnight or the recipe will not work. I wonder snick030 did you forget that step. These are a great cookie.
Love the flavor! These cookies have a good old fashioned goodness.
Unfortunately, this recipe was not successful for me. The dough was WAY too sticky that it was impossible to do anything with. We had to add a ton of flour to make it workable, and the taste did suffer a bit in the end. They are OK, but definitely not great :( If there are any tips on how to make this better, I'd love to hear though!
Perfect sugar cookie. This will become my go-to recipe from now on, not only for Christmas but all year. They are so good that they disappeared before I could frost them. In fact, they don't even need icing.
