Grandma Sheets' Sugar Cookies
June 03, 2003

The reviewer who complained about this recipe yielding sticky dough did not add enough flour. I have made this recipe five or six times and have had to add up to 9 cups of flour. If it's too sticky just keep adding flour. I went on a search for a cookie recipe that would make cookies like the ones my great-grandmother used to make--pale, floury, not very sweet--and this is exactly it. I made them for a family get-together and caused a sensation--everyone wanted to know where I found great grandma's long-lost recipe! They're good with or without icing, although people who are accustomed to today's ultra-sweet desserts may not appreciate them plain. I think they're perfect by themselves, and I give this recipe five stars. My sincere thanks to Kathy for sharing this recipe.
