Refrigerator Sugar Cookies

Recipe by Dana-MMH

These are a classic sugar cookie! Just simply delicious!! I have rolled out the dough and used cookie cutters and also made logs out of the dough.

Sorry, sweet Dana, but I had problems with this recipe. It's too wet and sticky. I think the proportions are incorrect. I think it has too much butter and/or maybe you don't need to add the milk. I tried really hard with it to make it work but the dough is too soft and sticky to roll out or roll in a log, even after being refrigerated overnight. I was able to make drop cookies with it, though, after I froze it in the freezer. The cookies taste really yummy. Soft and puffy with a nice vanilla flavor with just a hint of nutmeg.
