    I am hesitant to try this particular recipe because of the negative feedbacks.

    I was keen to find a recipe for sugar cookies so we could enjoy using our Christmas cookie cutters and then decorate them with icing. I don't know how this simple recipe could have gone so badly for me. What we have are what we I would consider irregular shaped biscuits. Someone please tell me where I went wrong. These 'cookies' actually shrunk. At first I rolled the dough too thick so the second tray were very very thin (1/8th) as instructed however they are not at all 'cookies'. My husband is enjoying them with jam however, and looks forward to eating them with cheese and various spreads. :)

    I really enjoyed this recipe...easy to make and my 3 year old son and I enjoyed cutting out Christmas trees and decorating them..although this cookies don't taste like the typical sugar cookie they are different in a good way..I will make these again..and plan on making this a family tradition recipe!!
