I have never had a SL recipe come out this badly! The dough was a nightmare, very crumbly, and the cookies stuck like crazy to my cookie sheets.
Classic Sugar Cookies

This glaze quickly became almost impossible to work with. Had to be microwaved frequently just to keep it at a workable consistency. Would not recommend it. Definitely could not dip cookies. Had to apply glaze with a pastry brush.

This is our favorite sugar cookie recipe around our house--even my 13-year-old son likes it and he says doesn't even like sugar cookies. Over and over again we turn to this--birthdays, Valentine's Day, Halloween, parties, etc....

This was the driest dough I have ever worked with. It was impossible to cut shapes. It crumbled to pieces when we tried to move them to the cookie sheet. I will not make these again. I was very disappointed.

My granddaughter and I made these three days ago, and they just keep getting better (the few that are left!). As the glaze thickened (as any glaze made this way does), I added a little more warm water. This will definitely be my "go-to" sugar cookie recipe from now on. A word of caution, though: Don't leave the dough in the refrigerator overnight (as we did) ... it gets too firm to roll, then allowing it to reach the proper consistency at room temperature takes quite some time.

This is a simple roll out recipe. Very near my grandmothers for taste. I did brush with egg whites before decorating so the decorative sprinkles would stick. I did not use the "glaze". Very important to chill before rolling and do not over work the dough.
