Sugar Cookies is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dry and Bland...Terrible Made exactly as directed with the ingredients exactly as suggested. Worst cookies ever. Too dry and very bland. Dough is so thick. It would seem more butter perhaps and certainly less flour. I won't eat them but our dog likes them Or course, he'll eat anything. Great for dog treats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good deal My mother in law always made sugar cookies every year this year following the passing of my wife she is now in a nursing home so I decided to make a couple batches using truvia in place of sugar they were every bit as good if not even better than the ones she used to make

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty sugar cookies I have not had the best of luck with sugar cookies. I like them to be a little soft and so I made them a bit thicker. Soft and yummy. My 3 1/2 year old helped me make them and it was super easy for him to follow my directions. Nothing complicated just good cookies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good dog treats The recipe called for way too much flour and I'm guessing way too little trivia because these cookies were not sweet at all! I had to dump some of the flour out and add vegetable oil so somewhat of a dough would form. I'm going to give these to my dogs as treats.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too stiff I made these cookies today and discovered that the dough is very stiff to roll out and cannot be rolled a second time without just having layers of dough, it doesn't work back into itself. Perhaps it should be made with 3 1/2 cups of flour possibly up to 3 3/4s.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biscuit recipe Wow these are dry and not sweet. I had to add a banana just to get it to dough consistency and we frosted them with full sugar icing. They taste like frosted scones. Not a bad thing but DEFINITELY not sugar cookies. Consider new test kitchen staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty I made these for a party that I had at my house last weekend. Everyone enjoyed them and I received many comments on how tasty they were. They tasted like they would have been made with sugar, but they were reduced in calories since I used Truvia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WASTE of FOOD Just made this 5minutes ago. The dough was crumbly and would barely hold together. Wasted a buttload of baking ingredients. Waste of time, money, and overall I'd rather eat dirt.
