The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

lori James


With Valentine's Day around the corner, I was looking through recipes for a good sugar cookie and found this one. I made them and they were a big hit with the family. I am actually looking forward to making more for a party on Valentine's Day! Of course you can decorate them for any holiday or just to have a good sugar cookie with coffee in the mornings. Enjoy!
