Used 1/4 cup of chilled dough, rolled into ball. Baked 20". (Added 1.5 T vanilla, 1/2 T almond, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 t salt.) Got so many compliments, I could have sold them! Very professional, and I'm not known for my cooking! Would be a perfect cookie for gifting.

Perfect at Easter with my 5# ham. I bought a Boars Head ham and it was a beautiful ham. I made Green Bean Bundles from this site-looked like a gourmet meal!

This cake was fun to make, so easy! Buttercream icing was delicious on it-I don't care for cream cheese icing. I took it to work and people remarked it tasted like a gourmet cake from a bakery. Thank so much for a great recipe.

This cake-like cookie is just amazing! I've made them numerous times since Christmas with different sprinkles for each holiday. People rave and always want the recipe. I use a Tbsp. cookie scoop and I use a more buttery icing-with 1/2 cup butter, 3.5 c. powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and half and half as needed. Such a nice gift for new moms and dads.

Creamy Banana Bread

Delicious! Per a friend's advice, I doubled the banana. Put half the nut mixture in middle and other half on top. Has more of a coffee-cake appeal than bread, but excellent flavor and moistness! Thanks for a great recipe!

These were unbelievably good and worth the work! Used slow cooker, baked in two pans-one with just cheese, the other with red echilada sauce and cheese. Won't be dry if you use juice from meat. Only baked 20 min. Thank you so much. Will use these for company and have copies ready!

Banana Layer Cake

You must try this cake if you want a light, delicious banana cake! I didn't want the traditional, dense kind and this is excellent. I adjusted the recipe for 12 servings and baked in 2-8inch pans, also used two whole bananas. Frosted with buttercream icing. I will make this cake many times because it tastes so light compared to other banana cakes. Thanks for the recipe I've been searching for!!

Sometimes it's best not to mess with a recipe. I followed some suggestions and added 1/2 cup oats and 1/4 cup cocoa-they were dry as a bone and didn't look like the picture! will have to try again!

I made this on the grill just as written except I only had french style green beans! And it was delicious! When my husband says a recipe with smoked sausage is a "keeper," that makes me happy because I love smoked sausage! Thanks so much.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Rating: Unrated
dobbyrn's rating

Rated this a 5 because the dough was so nice to work with, funny how some reviewers found it great and some too sticky. I always sift my flour, maybe this helps? My co-workers loved the flavor. My new vow is to try a recipe as written, then see if it needs improving. So now I plan to make this with less sugar next time (because even though I have the world's biggest sweet tooth) I thought these were very sweet. They were also slightly dry so I will bake them a little less or add less flour. Beautiful dough!

These are great, but super simple way to make them is to spray a round jello mold or form into a large wreath, decorate with red candies (large M&M's) and cut before serving!

A friend brought these to a Thanksgiving potluck and I couldn't believe how addicting they were! Can't wait to make them for my family. Thanks for the recipe!
