My daughter is allergic to egg. We have a crisp shortbread-like sugar cookie recipe that is egg-free and this recipe gives us a tender sugar cookie recipe too. You can change this up by skipping the nutmeg and subbing a tsp. of vanilla or by putting a little fresh lemon zest in. I looked at the other reviews and altered the recipe with 2 Tbsp. more of sugar and about 3 Tbsp. more sour cream. The dough is delicious the cookies are tender. Rolled them out to 1/4 inch thickness as 1/2 inch seemed way too thick. Baked about 10 minutes then cooled on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring to the cooling rack. Read More

These cookies are definetly not the "Best Ever Sugar Cookies". However with a few minor adjustments they can be quite yummy! Instead of Sour Cream we used vanilla yogurt. We used less flour and more sugar and added icing decorations on top of them. These simple substitutions made these cookies more enjoyable then the original recipe. - D&H Read More

I liked this recipe because it was easy to make and also very tasty too! I can tell you kids do like it for I am only 12 years (gr.7) old my self. I know that some kids say they like it when they realy don't. That is why I gave this recipe five stars! If you were wondering how I found this website it is because in famlay studys I am doing a cook book. I was looking for recipes on the internet! Hope to see you soon!

I thought this was a great recipe! Although I have to admit I did some tweeking after reading the other reviews. I added an additional 1/8 -1/4 cup of sugar along with a teaspoon or so of vanilla extract to the dough. The end result were honest to God the Best Ever Sugar Cookies! Even my husband who doesn't have much of a sweet tooth loved them! They're great plain or with frosting. maybe next time I'll roll balls of dough into a cinnamon and sugar mixture for a variation on the Snickerdoodle. Read More

I made these today for Christmas cookie cutouts. I used very small cutters and they worked great! AND very tasty. I haven't had very good luck with cutouts in the past in the flavor department. These are wonderful! I used powdered sugar instead of flour for rolling them out. Read More
