"excellent lite, crisp cookie- no way it taste like store bought dough as someone mentioned. They freeze well, and stay fresh in an airtight container. I just finished making 400 of them for a ladies tea party."

"We have made these several times. My daughter took them to state fair and won a purple ribbon with them. I've use chocolate pudding and peanut butter chips, Butterscotch pudding with butterscotch chips, Vanilla pudding with almonds. They are excellent"

"The taste was good and it's easy to make. I would use vanilla pudding next time if I make them again. They make a lot and I'm not sure they are better than premade sugar dough you get from the store. I wasn't wowed by the recipe."

"These cookies were a little hard. I pressed a few of them to make shapes out of them, and those cookies were especially crispy. The cookies that I rolled into balls before baking were better. I used pumpkin spice instant pudding mix - I wonder if that contributed? I guess I was hoping for a softer cookie, but these were still decent."

"This was a wonderful recipe. It reminded me of my Great Grandmother's sugar cookies. I really liked the recipe because it did not have to sit in the refrigerator for hours before you can make the cookies. I will definitely put this in my favorite cookies to bake."
