I'm mixing my no fail sugar cookie dough as I type. Recipe says roll to desired thickness. How thick should I roll the dough? HELP!!!

to desired thickness!!! Just kidding.......usually 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch depending on what you're after.....the thicker they are....they usually tend to be softer and more chewy, the thinner ones are usually more crisp.

I made some about a week ago and I rolled my dough at about 1/8 of an inch. It all just depends on how thick you want your cookies.

Thanks cake buddies! I'm a little obsessive-compulsive about following directions. I appreciate the quick response.

I just made some today!

I always do 1/4 inch thick - unless I'm putting sticks in them for bouquets. With sticks I make them a little thicker - maybe 3/16 of an inch.

3/16 is thinner than 1/4"

thanks, simply! I'm sorry... I meant 3/8!

I guess that's what happens when I stop in the middle of a sentence and then come back later and try to finish the thought!!

I roll them to a little thicker than 1/4" (5/16" to be exact- that's the size of the dowel rods that I use as a rolling pin guide) because I like softer, thicker sugar cookies. However, 1/3" if they have sticks in them.

Thanks for answering my questions about the cookie recipe and the icing consistency. here's my finished product. They aren't especially pretty, but I'll do better next time. Didn't make it thin enough initially when I flooded in the pink area.
