Lessons learned - sugar cookies

We had fun pulling together the sugar cookies described in this cooks.com page, but here are some lessons learned:

  • One way to cut down on sugary snacks like this, while still enjoying the experience of cooking with the kids, is to halve the quantity, so this recipe got us about 30 little cookies
  • Remember the salt in the butter!! I replaced the butter with "I can't believe it's not butter" and it worked well with regards to consistency, etc. Unfortunately the cookies came out a little salty -- and no, that didn't stop us from wolfing it down!
