Don't bother with this recipe. The dough was so sticky that I couldn't get it out of the bowl, off the scraper, or off my hands. It even stuck to the Silpat. I had to add a ton of flour to roll it out. 2nd batch I tried dropping with a cookie scoop... so sticky that it "sprung" the scoop. I threw the rest of the batter away. The cookies baked OK, but were very dry. The flavor improved with sitting overnight. But they were absolutely NOT worth the trouble and sticky mess!

I don't know How Taste of Home ever let this recipe on there Subscription, It was waste of my time and I threw them in the garbage..

These cookies are HORRIBLE. The texture is terrible and there is no taste to them at all. Mine did not "Puff" up and I had bought a brand new can of baking powder to do my Christmas baking, so that was not the problem. I am furious that I spent the money and all the time it takes to prepare cut out cookies on this recipe. Several people have tried them and they all give them a thumbs down. I hate to do it, but these are going in the garbage. My advice to all....DO NOT EVEN TRY THESE.

These cookies are delicious! My children and I bought cookie cutters to bake for Christmas and just happened to come across this recipe! Family, friends, everyone...raved about the thickness and the fluffiness. The whipping cream does it! We just bought our Easter cookie cutters and again, will be using this recipe. Cannot wait to hear all the "oooo's" and "ahhhhhh's" again. Well done!

Did not care for these at all. They have a cornbread texture to them. Would not recommend to anyone.
