Good cookie to make using cookie cutters. It spreads a lot while cooking so place them far apart on your baking sheet Read More

This recipe I give 4 stars only because it was lacking a few ingredients. You need more flour or they will sink after you take them out of the oven. Add 3 cups flour and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Read More

This recipe is the exact same as Mary's sugar cookies minus 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. I dont understand why this has gotten any negative reviews. These cookies are absolutely wonderful. They roll well bake well and taste perfect. Read More
