Footnotes

  • Reynolds Kitchens Tips:
  • When rolling dough between sheets of parchment paper, tear long sheets of Reynolds® Parchment Paper and let the ends closest to you, hang over the edge of the counter. Anchor the parchment in place by pressing your hip against the ends that hang over the counter.
  • Bake better sugar cookies by lining your baking sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. Either side works fine. Cookies lift right off & turn out soft & golden every time.

Such a good recipe!! These did NOT last long at all. I used almond extract instead of vanilla and made mine into thumbprint cookies using spiced plum jam.

These cookies were great! I did use 2 eggs and 1/2 tsp. lemon extract. I did not chill the dough, it rolled out great w/o chilling. I love the parchment paper to roll out (no extra flour needed!...

I made these cookies as directed in the recipe, even though I had doubts due to the other reviews. The dough was very hard to work with and roll out. In the end, I gave up trying to make cut-out...

TO DRY TO EVEN ROLL OUT... Just turned into a big counter full of crumbles. Worst cookie recipe EVER

The dough is so difficult to work with. I couldn't use the cookie cutters on it and they were pretty bland to taste. I prefer the rolled sugar cookies on this site that contain Cream cheese. Tho...

These worked great for me. It's important to chill the dough in a flat disc, and then when you're ready to roll and cut the cookies, allow it to rest at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes ...

I followed the recipe exactly, but scaled it to 18 cookies. I did sift my flour before I measured the amount stated and I thought the dough was a bit too soft at room temperature, but that was ...
