Vanilla-Butter Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 7 dozen
Stuck at home, so I decided to make these cookies. I made them a touch softer by using a bit more butter, them "dropped" them onto the cooking sheets. Didn't feel like screwing around with rolling and cutting them. Haven't frosted them yet, but the cookies themselves are delicious!
Made good cookies. I even froze the dough because I wasn't able to use it right away. Thawed in the fridge over a couple days, and left at room temp for a couple hours before baking. Came out great!
Dough was easy to handle - and delicious cookies
I didn't chill the dough. I used a small scoop and made round balls. They came out good, but I don't feel this is a true sugar cookie. It's more of a butter cookie. It needed the icing to give it more flavor.
A Christmas cookie tray favorite for years
Very tasty cookie. I made the dough two nights ago and made the cookies today. It was very easy to work with. However, some of the cookies seemed to lose their shape during baking. I had some very bloated-looking candy canes! The frosting was also delicious, my only issue was that I doubled the frosting recipe and there still wasn't enough to frost all of my cookies, and we went light.
I put the dough in the fridge for 24 hours...I panicked when I took it out the fridge & it was super hard. threw in the microwave for a few seconds..voila...perfect...these were delicious!!! had to triple the icing recipe....
Simply put, these are the Best tasting sugar cookies I have ever made. I about panicked when I thought I lost the recipe. They taste wonderful with a buttercream frosting or sandwiched with seedless raspberry jam and a glazed top.
I first made these cookies for the first time this past Christmas and then I made them again for Valentine's day to take as treats for work.This is hands down one of the best cookie recipes around. I was looking for a recipe that could compete with one my mom has that uses Crisco . My goal was to find a recipe that uses butter that is easy to work with and has a similar taste to the one my mom uses. A bite of these cookies is like a little bite of heaven. When rolled out a little thicker they are a little crunchy on the bottom, but very soft as well. My coworkers went nuts over these cookies. They said they were the best sugar cookie they ever tasted. One of them said these cookies taste like happy childhood memories. The dough is super easy to work with and it smells so good while you're working with it. I used my own buttercream frosting recipe instead of the one provided and I've been using home made vanilla extract and using double what the recipe calls for. You can't go wrong with this one.
Best sugar cookies ever!!
