This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Gail during my bridal shower back in 1992. I make these cookies for every holiday and occasion in between.

Serve these sugar cookies to your family and they'll be begging for them again and again. If they love the soft cookies that you get at the grocery store they have the texture of those... only this cookie recipe is better! Start pre-heating the oven now...
