  • Oil mold with vegetable oil or spray. Dust mold with flour, then tap mold on side to remove any excess flour. Press dough into mold, scraping excess off with a knife so that dough is flush with the edge of the mold. Loosen edges and let dough fall onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from sheet.

I'm not sure how real sugar cookies are supposed to taste but these tasted REALLY good especially out of the oven. It was easy to cut the cookies and none broke but I froze the dough for about 4 hours though. And I baked them for about 8 minutes instead. Also the sprinkles and cream that we used to decorate the cookie stayed on without problem. I would definitely recommend this recipe. I gave this recipe 4 stars because it wasn't the best tasting one. Read More

This was a terrrible recipe. My husband spit his cookie out his brother fed it to the dog and my was told if I made this for my daughters class I would be the most hated Mom in the history of kindergarten. They were more like a bread/dough then a cookie. I don't know if the salt is wrong and should be baking soda or powder but this recipe as it is is not good. Try another one save yourself the effort.

I used this recipe for a stoneware cookie mold. After the cookies were baked you could not really see the image I molded into them. I ended up using the rest for spritz cookies and those came out okay. Read More

Not sure what other reviewers' salt issues were (perhaps used salted butter maybe misread teaspoon as tablespoon...) but my batch came out just fine. A bit bland as others noted but if you're looking for a cookie to decorate with frosting and sprinkles you probably want a neutral palette with which to begin. Just be sure to refrigerate the dough thoroughly and it helps to stick the cookie sheet back in the fridge after cutting to let the dough re-harden. Read More

This was the best sugar cookie recipe I've used! I followed the directions almost completely. (I didn't have any of the required vanilla and I didn't refrigerate the dough before making the shapes) and it came out perfect! I also didn't put the dough into the cutters but did it the old school way and pushed the cutters into the rolled out dough easy peasy and deeee-lish! Read More

Cookies came out just the way I like them. Easy to cut and soft when done baking. They're a little bland but decorating them with frosting and sprinkles makes them taste just right. Read More
