    I have to agree…these are wonderful cookies. My granddaughters love to make them with me, however, the only drawback is that there is a line of people waiting to eat them as they’re coming out of the oven. Some wait for the frosting, some don’t. Its more like a grabfest time.

    Kevin, for the frosting…is that 1 cup shortening?

    I need to try this recipe. I make Lovina’s penutbutter cookies regularly, my children and grandchildren love them. I cannot keep them around for long.

    These are the same ingredients used in the Amish Sugar Cookies, except it calls for 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 4 1/2 cups flour; you then drop by small teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets and do not have to press down. My whole family loves them, especially my almost 4 year old granddaughter who finishes the whole cookie whereas she will just take a bite of most other cookies and be done with them. I do not frost as they are very good on there own. You need to let them get light brown or they are very crumbly.

      Those sound good, Rosemary….I love frosting but, yes, there are some sugar cookies that are so good on their own, they don’t need a boost from frosting and yours sounds like they fit the bill!
