Sugar Cookie Recipe

This is a wonderful sugar cookie recipe, I’ve been using for quite a while now.

The cookies are light and tasty with out being heavy or tough.

They are not overly sugary, and taste great alone or with a thin or thick glaze icing on top.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe…The cookies look amazing! I’m thinking of trying to make some for Christmas this year but had a quick question that I was hoping you could answer (and possibly save me a baking nightmare). Does the recipe scale up okay? Have you tried making a large batch of the dough?

    This recipe makes 3 dozen heart cookie, about 2 1/2 inch cutter across. It will depend on the cookie cutter size and how thick you roll them.
