Reviews forSurefire Sugar Cookies
"Also made some with crushed peppermints, chocolate sprinkles, nuts, etc. on white bark."
"These are a great quick recipe to make and so good too."
"I'm sitting at home in a blizzard. There's something about snow falling that makes me want to bake:) I was so disappointed to find that this recipe called for a tube of refrigerated cookie dough! Who looks for a recipe for sugar cookies when they have a tube of refrigerated cookie dough? I'll keep looking and find a REAL recipe. I wish 'cop outs' like this weren't included when I'm looking for a recipe. It's a waste of baking time!"
