These turned out great! I used 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond like suggested and it is perfect! 5 stars

Great cookies! But just wondering, do you have to chill them in the fridge? 5 stars

Ultimate Sugar Cookies are becoming our traditional cookies for holidays. Our families & friends love them. They have been asking me to make it again. Best cookies I've ever come across. :D 5 stars

This recipe was amazing! The only suggestion i can make is to add 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond instead of 1 tsp of vanilla. The almond gives the cookies more flavor! 5 stars

My sister and I have found that these are the best! We do use the Butter flavor Crisco and everyone LOVES them! 5 stars

My dough even after refridgeration was too soft. I had to add more flour to make a stiffer dough so I could roll it out. 3 stars

This sounds like an amazing recipe. Does anyone know how to make the perfect icing for snowflake sugar cookies. I want to create swirls to each point of the flake and then sprinkle sugar crystals on it so they sparkle. I have looked at many recipes and am not sure which one will hold its shape best and store for a couple of weeks. Any hints would be very much appreciated.

RESPONSE: You are looking for Royal Icing. Do a search! :o)

These are the absolute BEST sugar cookie recipe I've come across. It's easy, quick, and fool-proof. I've even tried it by substituting lemon extract for the vanilla - delicious! Thanks for the recipe. 5 stars

Okay, so I used butter instead of Crisco - I've had nothing but bad luck using that stuff and butter is what it's usually made with.
Number one: I had to add about 3/4 cup more four. In the past I've had to do it with all of my cookie recipes. If the dough sticks to your fingers it needs more flour.
And two: Don't roll it out on a floured counter because it doesn't help. Roll it out on wax paper and hope for the best.
