I agree with the previous reviewer that these taste like cakey snickerdoodles and I wouldn't like it any other way! I made them because I ran out of vanilla and I needed sugar cookies, also I us...

I thought these cookies tasted great although they tasted more like a cakey snickerdoodle. Delicious, will make over and over! I didn't have buttermilk so I used sour cream.

It was ok, just not what I was looking for, I wouldnt consider them sugar cookies
