Sugar Cookies

Jean Fisher


This is a delicious cookie to make. Wonderful to make around the holidays for a special treat for the children. My children always liked to help decorate with icing.

We love sugar cookies. They're fun to cut out and to decorate. This sugar cookie is so buttery. It has just the right amount of flour to make it hold a good shape and still maintain the sweet buttery flavor. A great recipe to have on hand for a holiday. Cut into your favorite shapes and decorate. They're tasty and delicious. This makes a small batch of cookies. If you are making enough for a crowd, double the recipe.
