This cookie dough is a bit too dry to work with. The cookies are very fragile, even after cooling completely. I felt like it was more of an add for Reynold's than an actual functional good recipe. Would not recommend.

These are great! 4 star recipe



I made these cookies as directed in the recipe, even though I had doubts due to the other reviews. The dough was very hard to work with and roll out. In the end, I gave up trying to make cut-out cookies and instead rolled the dough into balls with my hands and flattened them out into colorful circles. After the cookies were baked they had a nice flavor, but were very dry. I am an avid baker and I don't suggest this recipe. If you are planning to make it, definitely take the advice of the reviewers who tweaked this one. Use whole eggs, and a bit less flour. The Reynold's Parchment paper really was the saving grace for these cookies. I think they would have been burned or been too fragile if they were baked on an unlined cookie sheet. They had perfectly browned bottoms and slid right onto the cooling rack, thanks to the parchment.
