Charmie's Soft Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Charmie777

I know there are a ton of sugar cookie recipes here, but I couldn't find this one, and it's my favorite! It makes a nice thick and soft sugar cookie, that's perfect for all the holidays. Frost these with your favorite vanilla frosting (I often just used the store-bought stuff...shhhhh!). Cooking time includes chilling time. I'm guessing on the amount, but I'll adjust when I make these soon!

Agreed w/everyone else that the temp was too high. I even baked mine at 350 and they turned out great (my oven tends to get really hot). I also did put the remaining dough in the fridge in between batches b/c as someone else posted, the dough got soft really quick. The cookies themselves came out BIG, SOFT, DELICIOUS...PERFECT!
