Super Soft Sugar Cookies

Shauna Evans


I was on a sugar cookie with pink frosting quest. I tried dozens of recipes claiming to be the best and after trial and error and process of elimination, I discovered the best recipe for sugar cookies with pink frosting. They are fancy, fun, and hip. Sugar cookies with pink frosting never go out of style!
