  • Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your recipe!!! For YEARS I have tried baking sugar cookies that didn’t spread and now I have it, thanks to you :) They were PERFECT. Your cookies are beautiful and your tips incredibly helpful. Now on to the royal icing…that may be a whole different ball game.

  • Hi there Steph I want to know how many batch of cookies does this recipe make?

  • My daughter’s and I recently discovered this vlog and we are so happy we did. We followed the recipe using gluten free flour and it made the best Gluten Free sugar cookies. We had so much fun decorating the cookies. We are hooked and want to make a bunch more!

  • Salted or unsalted butter? Loved your video! Just held a Valentine’s Cookie Icing Workshop with my co-workers and I streamed your video. You have 16 new followers.
