    These cookies taste great. I baked these cookies for kids to decorate, we used the frosting in squeeze bottles of different colors and the the kids used paint brushes to spread around, we topped with all sorts of crystals and sugars.

    EXCELLENT! Cut mine out just a fraction over 1/4 inch, to make sure they didn't get too crisp. Took them out when edges were just barely brown. Texture was perfect: crispy outside, wonderfully chewy inside. I used a heart-shaped cutter and tinted the frosting baby pink for Valentine's Day: so CUTE!

    I love the fact that this is a sugar cookie recipe with a little less butter! The rolling technique really works to keep it together. It takes a bit of patience since it needs to rest in the frig a couple of times, but I think it's worth it. Thanks Cooking Light!

    Very nice favor and easy to roll out, but a bit too hard, crunchy for us. I baked them at lower temperature due to the altitude and still only needed 10 minutes

    I'm not sure what happened, but these turned out terrible! From the start dough was crumbly and did not stick together. Definitely will not make again. Glad I did a test run!

    DO NOT OVERBAKE. I baked mine until golden on the edges and they were rock hard!!! They should be white when done baking. Other than that, they tasted good!
