    I used 5 tbls. butter, and used a whole egg instead of an egg white. They came out very nice. I pressed some of the slices in cinnamon and sugar, and got a tasty snickerdoodle. Nice everyday cookie.

    Stupidly simple and oh so yummy! I love that I can slice off only the amount of cookies I want and keep the rest frozen. A very good way to keep my diet on track.

    Good for low cholesterol diets. Although it requires several hours to freeze, this recipe is pretty simple. Very sugary cookies.

    These are my go-to sugar cookies for the holidays - I'm not the best baker in the world, so having an easy recipe like this for my husband's favorite Christmas cookies is very handy. They are definitely basic and very sweet, so extra decor / icing isn't needed - we usually just eat them plain or decorate lightly with red, white & green sprinkles to give it a little extra holiday cheer. If you want a simple, easy recipe for making these holiday classics, this is a great one to start with!

    I made these and they were decent. They were a little bit too buttery, but with that being said they had a decent texture otherwise and didn't just taste like pure sugar. If you're lazy but want a sweet fix they're good, but I wouldn't make them for anyone in hopes to impress them.
