Soft Sugar Cookie Puffs Recipe

My husband's Aunt Laurel always made these cake-like cookies with her own farm-fresh eggs, cream and butter. Now I prepare batches for Christmas each year. We like them because they're not overly sweet. —D. Elaine Rutschke, Spruce View, Alberta
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:36 servings

"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....

"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."
