Tender Italian Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I made these cookies today. Baked them at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. The bottoms are very very dark. Almost look burnt. What am I doing wrong???
These cookies are nice to make for a cookie tray. They are quite pretty, and I change the color of the food coloring to go with the holiday and/or season. To me, they needed a little something extra so I have at times added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract or 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips to the cookie dough with very good results.
I made these for a luncheon at school and they were well received. After reading reviews I added a teaspoon of butter emulsion that I had along with almond extract to add more flavor. I kept the vanilla extract too. I think they are more like a shortbread cookie than sugar, though. They were delicious and, as another mentioned, not too sweet but perfect with the icing. I also used a cookie scoop for uniform size. Will definitely be making them again.
I have made Italian cookies many years for holidays and weddings. I saw this recipe and thought it was pretty for a tray. I will not make again. Too sweet and I did not like the taste. I will continue using my recipes I have been handed down from family.
I used almond extract instead and they turned out just great... the icing and sugar sprinkles make up for the not so sweet cookie. This is a keeper!
Base cookie isn't overly sweet, but was balanced out with the icing and sprinkles. I used a cookie scoop to get uniform cookies.
Just made these cookies and also found them a little bland, will make them again just will add some orange extract to flavor them up. Icing was very runny even after adding extra sugar.
Love these cookies and they are always a hit a christmas time
Just ok. I agree with others that these are pretty bland. Not a very sweet cookie if that's what you're looking for.Easy to make, but not my idea of a sugar cookie.
For more flavor use almond flavor in cookie and i used peppermint flavor in icing
