This recipe is as close to foolproof as I have ever made. I have never made an edible cookie, and my wife of 32 years has always had difficulty makeing sugar cookies, so when I found this recipe in Cook,s Illustrated, I was amazed with how well this worked. I made some tweeks to lower the sugar amount and added cinnamon to change the flavor and look. Please enjoy!
