Sugar Cookie is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not For Cookie Cutters Or Decorating!! These cookies are the best but everyone is upset that they're not working with their cookie cutters and are just turning into circles. THESE COOKIES ARE NOT FOR COOKIE CUTTERS OR DECORATING! THAT IS WHAT ROLL OUT COOKIE DOUGH IS FOR!! These cookies are amazing, I use the recipe all the time and I hope I do not see anyone complaining about them not working for your cookie cutters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them. Not sure why everyone is having problems. I clicked on your category "Sugar Cookies" and followed the directions. They came out perfectly. No where in the recipe does it say to roll out the dough. Perhaps because it came with the cookie cutters that is what caused the confusion. Anyway, I rolled them into balls and flattened them on the cookie sheet. The kids had a ball decorating them. Nice simple recipe.
