Ok, so obviously, the most basic cookie out there is the sugar cookie. Mostly made of it’s title ingredient, sugar, with some flour, and a few other elements thrown in, it isn’t hard to make, and is really hard to mess up.
Unfortunately, this recipe does exactly that. The dough was overly gooey, and the cookies were sticky. I even buttered the pan to keep them from sticking after the first round had to be chipped off, to no avail.
As you can see, they did not hold any sort of shape, and spread terribly.
The density was nice, though, however it was a gummy crumb, even when baked longer. The flavor was meh, and I just couldn’t get past it.
I really tried to like it, thinking it might grow on me, but I just couldn’t.
So, in summary, the “Best Sugar Cookies” are decidedly not. The recipe is here, should you decide to try your hand and have better luck, please let me know!
1 C. butter
1.5 C. sugar
2 T. milk
4 C. flour

Roll dough into 1/4 inch thickness and cut to desired shape with a cookie cutter.

Cool and frost if desired.
Next week’s cookie will be “Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookies.”
