Recipe by Michelle S.

These are undoubtably the BEST sugar cookies I have ever had! They are crispy and perfectly sweet. You may decorate them with colored sugars for the holidays.

I picked this recipe because the first reviewer said they were not sweet enough and that might appeal to others. Well I just made them! They turned out crisp and they are sweet but not too sweet.They were also extremely easy to make, I halved the recipe. One thing I did different was: I rolled the dough into little balls, dipped the ball in the sugar, sugar side up I pressed it down with a clean glass, this worked better for me. I am not a cookie person and make them more for my husband, friends and neighbours but I have nibbled away three of these cookies already!! Thanks to you and your Mom for this very easy and nice recipe
