Gimme some Sugar {cookies!}

You know how you have those awesome recipes from your mom.  But you are always looking for something better.  Just in case?  That's how I have been with sugar cookies.   And I always go back to this one.  It is WAY easy and unless I forget about them in the oven they are soft, just how I like em.  Plus they don't take a ton of time so when we decide to make sugar cookies we get to do it right then.
I guess Mother knows best.    {Totally in a tangled voice by the way}

In the spring I add some lemon zest and lemon juice.  In the summer I use part almond extract.  And in the fall and winter  I love to add cinnamon and nutmeg.  One thing for sure though is they gotta be soft, which I think has a lot to do with how thick you roll out the dough.

So I wanna know are you a soft sugar cookie kind of person? Or are you crazy and like the crunchy kind? ;)



  1. Soft sugar cookie all the way. A hard cookie? It's just wrong on so many levels.

    This looks very similar to the recipe I use but I'll try this one "just in case!"

  2. Um, totally a soft sugar cookie lover. I will always pass up a cookie that looks hard...but always take more then one if they look soft!
    Thanks for the recipe...we are making Halloween ones tomorrow. I will have to give this one a try.

  3. Yummy!
