Large Batch Roll-Out Cookies is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweeked a bit I read reviews and was a little disappointed that this might not be the same recipe that I started making in 1980. I did not refrigerate dough. Oven was at 400 and rack in the middle. I rolled out the dough to 1/4” thickness and baked for only 5 minutes. The cookies were still puffy when I took them out so I left them on the cookie sheet to cool a bit, maybe 2 minutes. The cookies turned out to be very chewy and the kids loved them, uniced! Tomorrow we will ice them with the big batch poured icing. Still my favorite sugar cookie ever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a waste! I generally do not bake Christmas decorated sugar cookies so when a friend asked me to bake with her, I thought it would be fun so I started looking for a really good recipe. After reading the raving reviews, I chose this one and followed the recipe to the T. They turned out hard as a rock and had just about as much flavor! I rolled them out to the 1/8th-inch thickness and then baked them for the amount of time stated in the instructions. They were soft coming out of the oven, but when they cooled and were ready for decorating, they were too hard to eat. I think I will just stick with the usual Chocolate Chip Cookies and Snickerdoodles and call it good!
