Overall, a very tasty and tender butter cookie. Also, because of so few ingredients, it is quick to mix. The dough was a little difficult to work with -- so I cheated and rolled it out between two sheets of waxed paper, set it on a cookie sheet, froze it for about 20 minutes, then cut out the frozen dough. (I do this with almost all cut out cookie dough. It works great and the cookies don't lose their shape!) Since I used small cutters, I reduced the baking time to 10 minutes.

Nice texture and taste. I found the dough, in the original recipe a bit too crumbly. With an extra Tablespoon of milk and an extra 1/4 cup of butter, it was perfect! Thank you for sharing your recipe, Jelly. I'll be making this one for every cut-out cookie holiday, and maybe some in between!

Very easy to make, had to have my oven on 300 or the bottoms got too brown. Very tasty cookies and rolled out great. Keep in mind when you put them on the cookie sheet, they don't spread, so you can put more on. MY KIDS AND FRIENDS RAVED ABOUT THE TASTE!!! I added 1 extra tsp. of vanilla. GREAT RECIPIE, THANKS!!
