Absolutely the Best Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies have a semi-crisp bite to them. That is just like I like them. The butter gives them a rich balance and the addition of the heavy cream assists in the resulting texture. These are by far the best sugar cookie I have ever had, but you decide for yourself. The cookie bakes up very flat and is great for gift giving, as they stack quite nicely for wrapping in cellophane and a ribbon. My advice is to bake plenty if you plan on letting the secret out that you baked them.
