"This is one of the better sugar cookie recipes I've found. The dough is just right for rolling out and cutting into shapes. And it freezes well."
"Our family loves this recipe. Very rich, with extreme chocolate taste. I asked the kids if I made them today would they last two days, they said why not make them today and two days from now!"
Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies
"Wonderful taste and easy to make. Imagine dunking snickerdoodles in eggnog--YUM! My office is raving about them right now. Because dough was so soft, I popped it in the freezer for a few minutes before scooping it out and putting on the baking sheets."
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Brown Butter
"These cookies really are amazing! Made them a few times and everyone loved them (kids and adults, alike). Delicious taste and texture."
"Loved these cookies, they were light, yet had a little chew with the coconut. Easy to make."
Chewy Molasses Cookies
"I am not normally a big fan of molasses cookies. These were the exception. OMG are they great! These will definitely be added to my Christmas cookie tray. Soft, chewy, melt in your mouth good."
Chocolate Thumbprints with Caramel and Sea Salt
"The cookie is much like a fudge-y brownie in texture and oh so delicious. These were also not hard to make, despite the recipe being somewhat complex at first glance. My five year old daughter helped with the shaping and dusting."
"This recipe is everything I hoped it would be. I prefer soft cookies and it is hard to find a good soft spice cookie recipe. This recipe is a keeper. It will become part of my Christmas baking tradition, and make an excellent addition to my rotation for fresh baked gifts!"
All-Time Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
"Wow! The best homemade chocolate chip cookies EVER!! Yum! Just made a batch yesterday and already planning to make more this weekend!"
Raspberry Linzer Cookies
"I have used this recipes for years and years! All my friends and family love these cookies. You do need to have some time to make them, they are not an easy cookie and its really two cookies in one so double the batch if you have a cookie swap. They are a show stopper and I make mine round with a mitten shape cut out of the middle. Very yummy!"
