  • These cookies are just as you say they are. Soft and Chewy. I have been looking for a recipe like this for years. Thank You So Much!!! p.s. I think I may substitute lemon extract for the vanilla for something different

  • These are the best sugar cookies I've ever had! They really are soft and chewy! After I flattened the cookies out, I sprinkled more sugar on the tops and gently pushed it down with the back of the spoon. It made them extra tasty!

  • I was looking for a simple sugar cookie recipe, and I have to say that these are the BEST EVER!!! The only things I did differently were I used a vanilla butter and nut flavor extract and I used several different sugars as well as M&M’s. They turned out awesome! I also laid wax paper down on the pan and liked how the cookies turned out better than the ones I laid directly onto the pan. Wonderful recipe—thank you!!

  • I have been looking for a sugar cookie recipe like this for a while now. I made these and they turned out so yummy! The flavor is wonderful, and the soft, chewy texture is perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!

  • Very good cookie! Just what I was looking for as I searched for a chewy sugar cookie recipe on-line. I will add it to my recipe box for sure! mmmmm!

  • I'm always skeptical of recipes and comments on the internet, but these sugar cookies were indeed great! They taste great and are chewy with a slight crispy edge.

  • What a great recipe. These cookies have become a family favorite. My son's soccer team loved them too! One recipe made way more than 30 medium sized cookies. I did substitute real butter. Easy and delicious.

  • Holy cow, these are great! I despise sugar cookies and yet find myself thinking about those currently cooling on a rack in the kitchen. They seem to be CALLING my name Thanks for a FABULOUS recipe!

  • These were a mess. I nearly ruined non stick cookie sheets just trying to get them off! It says ungreased pans..and mine are non stick and newer pans. I couldn't lift any of the cookies off...I scraped the lot into the garbage. Can't imagine what I did wrong! I followed the recipe exactly!
