This is a very easy recipe. Everything turned out wonderfully, until we tried to eat them. If you are looking for a cookie that is super easy, but tastes awful...this is the one. Completely inedible.



Everybody who said that these cookies taste good must have scalded their taste buds off before eating them.... I've never had a worse-tasting cookie, and that's saying a lot. You might as well eat flour straight out of the bag. I'm not sure if using confectioners' sugar is the norm for sugar cookies, but it sure makes these taste terrible.



I was looking for this recipe for the last couple yrs. The only thing I do differant is use Butter Flavored Crisco. I'm so glad I found it again. I made these all the time kids love them and a elderly lady I took care of wanted me to make them for her too.
