It was quite easy to make. But it did not taste buttery and it was kind of bland tasting.

I really wanted to love this one, but just can't. For some reason they were very flat and had a strange taste, almost like a tin taste. I am a professional cook/baker and haven't ever had this problem in the past with sugar cookies...sorry but not a great one for me.

A quick, easy recipe. My daughter and her friend made 5 different variations - two different sprinkles, toffee chips and drizzled choc, cinnamon & sugar, and candy coated pieces. With the double batch they had a beautiful cookie tray for a party! Will be making again very soon.
