We used this recipe for rolled out cookies. I baked them for 11 minute- I took them out before they started to brown,as we wanted super soft cookies. They came out great. The dough held its shape well, and didnt require chilling before rolling and cutting. I found it very easy to work with. I sprinkled one pan with cinnamon and sugar before baking- they were great! The kids used frosting on some of them. Since they are not super sweet on their own, the frosting isnt to much. edit to add: we've made this recipe a few times now. Its even better if you add the zest of one medium orange. It gives them a bit more flavor.

Absolutely wonderful! Be sure to cream the butter, shortening, and sugar together until mixture is light and fluffy before proceding to next step. This will make a big difference. Also, it helps to chill the dough before rolling into balls. This is the best sugar cookie I've ever tasted! It's a keeper!

I couldnt believe how delicious and soft these cookies came out! I was soo undecided on which cookie recipe to go with, but I went with my gut on this one, and Im so glad that I did. Because they turned out sooooo delicious. I rolled them into good size balls, then dropped the tops of them in some pink sugar crystals, and flatened the top with a glass, baked for 8 mins, and they were perfect, THANKS!
