Tina's BEST sugar cookies ever made

This is a rich and short cookie. A family favorite for sure. It makes a lot of cookies and trust me, we go through them at Christmas and still have cookies to give for gifts. The recipe can easily be halved if you only want 10 dozen or divided by 4 if you want even less.

3
sift dry ingredients and add to mixture.
4
roll in to balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet Press down lightly with a sugar dipped glass bottom. I look at around for a glass with a pretty pattern on the bottom. The ones I use are leaded glass liquor decanters. I dip in red and green colored sugars for Christmas. The tops of the cookies then have a starburst pattern with festive colors.

Bake 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
