    You are very welcome. Sometimes I wont put it in the fridge and it still turns out great. Another recipe that will work to make soft cookies and you can shape are the spritz just don't put them in the cookie press, roll them and cut out the shapes and they will cook up great.

    Kim,
    I'm going to try your recipe for your sugar cookies. You have no idea how long I've been trying to find a soft sugar cookie recipe. My dad won't eat the hard ones. I've tried other recipes and no luck. But I'm going to try yours and I'm sure it will be just fine. And thanks for telling us about the spritz cookies. For some crazy reason I have always thought they needed to go in the cookie gun. It's so nice to know they actually don't. Take care and thanks again for sharing. Now I'm going to print your recipe out! Have a Blessed and Wonderful Day All!!

    Hugs,
    Syndy

    Syndy, I think the people who created the cookie press came up with the idea that spritz should only go in them. I love using the spritz recipe to make candy cane shaped cookies (divide the dough in half color one red leave the other half plain and roll them in logs and twist together to look like a candy cane). Hope the cookies turn out for your father.
