Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add 2 cups of the flour and the sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Slowly mix in the remaining 2 cups of flour.
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/4 of an inch. Cut cookies using cookie cutters and place 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are light brown at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes (depending on their size).
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Although the recipe was easy to make, my cookies turned out hard. We like our cookies soft. Any suggestions on how to do this? I/we really like the flavour of this recipe and I would like to use it again. Thanks for submitting it.

The dough was very easy to roll and cut, and not having to chill made this recipe easy and quick to prepare. I baked for less time for a more tender cookie, and frosted for valentine's day. Adding vanilla or almond extract would probably make a more flavorful cookie, but these weren't too bad. Husband and kids loved them.

this recipe was quite easy to make but the end result was REALLY DISGUSTING. the cookies were rock hard and they were too sweet. i'd try making it again but i'd rather spend my time and efforts trying to find a better recipe.
