Why I Love This Recipe
I LOVE Sugar Cookies. My mother shared this recipe with me. I had like them but they came out a little hard and not so sweet. I didnt really change anything but I added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and made sure the butter was SUPER soft. When they came out they were perfect!!! I have shared this recipe many many time with family and friends. Hope you like them!!
