I added a word to the dictionary during the Christmas Holidays--MomMoms Sugar Cookies: dough rolled out thinly on floured surface and cut with assorted Christmas shapes together with fun, laughter and love. Although MomMom has moved to heaven, as I roll and cut the same recipe along with the same cookie cutters, in the same kitchen the tradition started, the memories are etched in my thoughts. Thoughts of love and caring and MomMoms great smile with the bright twinkle of her eyes as she baked the best tasting sugar cookies ever made--in My Book, My Dictionary! Thank you MomMom! Contributed by Maureen Yin.

Would make this again.
The Reciepe was easy to follow, easy to make... except when I was rolling it out kept sticking to my rolling pin? Still tasted excellent though! :) 4 stars

I liked these cookies. I'm not a great baker so I think I followed the recipe well enough. My kids didn't think they were sweet enough (!) But I thought they were a very nice cookie. Almost like a shortbread cookie. 4 stars

Great cookies 2nd time I've made them only problem is I always have to add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of flour when I go to cut them. But they still turn out great! 4 stars

i like to use powder sugar instead of flour to roll out sugar cookies it rolls out about the same and doesnt leave the cookie dry, but it is a bit sweeter. 5 stars

Dede used baking soda instead of baking powerd. Very common mistake for people not paying attention. That is the only thing (if followed properly) that can effect the taste of the cookies poorly. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
These cookies were inedible. They had the worst taste, that I couldnt get out of my mouth. I copied the recipe exactly, I made one batch and threw the rest of the dough out. AWFUL!!! 1 star

great cookies... reminded me of my mommom too.

how much you wanna bet "william in georgia" and "a cookie baker in US" are the same person? because the two being posted the same day doesn't give any clues. Especially when they both use the word "floury", which isn't even a real word.
4 stars

These truely have to be the best cookies I have ever made. To ice them I use a powdered sugar glaze which works great. Just make sure to not use to much flour when rolling out the dough, or else the cookies will come out dry and cakey. 5 stars
