Mama Jan's Super Yummy Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by cook from scratch

My MIL got these from her student assistant years ago and we have been making them ever since! My husband and I fight over them when she would send them to us in a care package when we didn't make it home for the holidays. Now I make them as well and we still fight over them! I bake them on my baking stones which makes them softer. If using a metal cookie sheet they will be harder.

These cookies are yummy. The taste is great. My made it with my son of 4 years old. He helped me roll the dough and cut it in hearts and rabbits. I cooked them 10 minutes for the first batch. But with 9 minutes it was better. Thanks cook from scratch :) Made for PAC Spring 2010
