Martha Stewart's recipe says to roll an 1/8 of an inch thick but that seems awfully thin to me? Just wondering how thick you roll for regular sugar cookies. I know if they are "on a stick" I'd have to roll thicker, maybe 1/2 to 3/8 inch.

I roll mine at 1/4" for regular sugar cookies.

Thicker than the stick you plan to poke inside of them.

Mine get rolled out the thickness of a wooden spoon handle.

I get two 3/8 in square dowel rods at lowes , use this as my guide to roll dough out. 3/8 seems to work good. Got this thickness from cookie crazie blog, her cookies are fab

Mine end up somewhere between 1/4" and 3/8" inch as I like them thick and chewy.

Me, too. I used to roll all of them 3/8" but I found out that the 1/4" holds up just as well under the RI.
