The cookies had a nice flavor. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 is because 8 minutes of baking time is too long! My first batch I only baked for 7 minutes and the cookies were very crunchy. When I baked for 5.5 minutes they came out nice and soft. Otherwise, quite tasty!

Wonderful recipe! I really liked that the cookies expanded when they cooked, so don't use particularly large cookie cutters. They are the softest, best tasting frosted sugar cookie I've ever eaten.

I use this dough for candy canes, adding peppermint extract to the dough and the frosting, and topping it with crushed peppermint. These are some of the best cookies I have had. practically foolproof, I am proud to add these cookies to my repitoire
