My step mother gave me this recipe it was in the newspaper years ago and it's our family's favorite sugar cookie recipe. It can be used for cut out or drop cookies.

The dough was really soft when I mixed it up so I just dropped the cookies onto the baking sheet with a teaspoon, then flattened them with a glass. They really spread during baking but I liked them a lot. I baked mine for 8 minutes. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
