I have gotta say-these were not great-if I could I would give them 2 stars and 1/2 but seeing as how there is no 21/2 star I decided to go with 3. I have this everlasting quest for the best ever drop sugar cookie recipe-chewy tasty not too flat but not too thick soft like a Subway cookie-and this was definetly not it. It was okay if you are looking for a cakey bisuit type cookie.... Read More

After changing the recipe a little these are the best sugar cookies I have ever had. And very easy to make don't have to roll them out. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt only put in half of the flour and omit the milk and put in 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of one. sprinkle sugar and cinnamon or sugar on top or leave them plain and they are perfect.

These cookies should be called "biscuits". Although they definetly aren't the best cookies this recipe makes a lightly sweet biscuit that can be eaten with jam for breakfast or a snack. I don't love them but I didn't throw them away either. Read More

I mistakenly rated these cookies as good but I was rating the wrong cookie recipe. I'm sorry about that but these cookies should be called butter cookies or mini biscuits or something because they weren't really sugar cookies. My husband and son were not very thrilled with them. They are great with coffee that is true but not great sugar cookies. Sorry I hope I didn't mislead anyone. Read More

WAY too much flour in this recipe. Outcome was similar to a bread-like cookie. Read More
