Sugar cookies are my favorite cookies to make and these are the only ones I will EVER make again! I always add extra almond extract and they are So big and delicious! I've made them so many times that people just expect them for every holiday! I don't use this icing recipe, instead I make it with corn syrup and different flavored extracts.... I let the iced cookies set overnight and the are so stackable and ship Very well. For Valentines day, I made pink icing with strawberry extract and red icing with raspberry extract. I always put them in cute printed cellophane treat bags and give them to everyone in my family and everyone at work. (and I always save a few for myself)

These cookies were very good! To tell the truth, I really debated whether or not to make them since a few people really did not like them at all. I thought what the heck -- I like to bake and it would really not be that big of a deal if we didn't like them. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with 28 thick, soft cookies. I added a little almond to the dough, as others had done, just to give it a little flavor. I'm not sure what those who didn't like them are looking for. They were very easy to make, and the dough was easy to handle. The final cookie is a little shortbread-like. We really liked them and will make them again!

These really are soft and perfect. I have been looking for a good sugar cookie cut out recipe and this is the one. Upon reading other reviews, I doubled the vanilla and added about 3/4 teaspoon almond extract. I also increased the sugar by 1/4 cup. I refrigerated the dough for about two hours and it was so easy to work with. When I baked them, I put them on a silpat liner and the bottoms didn't even brown. I made hearts for Valentine's Day, and I put them, unfrosted, in the freezer. I will take them out and thaw them when I am ready to frost them. Yummy cookies! They remind me of a homemade version of Cheryl & Co.
