Recipe by mommyoffour

I haven't made this recipe yet, but I plan to this Easter. I got this recipe from the "Backyard Farmer" viewers recipe book. I love a good soft sugar cookie with some sugar sprinkled on top and this one sounds good. Let me know what you think of it.....

These are good and buttery. I halved the recipe and used whole wheat pastry flour. I also didn't roll out the dough, I just dropped them onto the cookie sheet. They are so soft that they are an eating sugar cookie not a decorating sugar cookie. Very tasty.
