These are the best sugar cookies I have ever had. Quantity is a guesstimate - it depends on the size of your cookie cutter. Be careful not to overbake.

My favorite sugar cookie recipe!! I made a double batch and they were gone in one day! However, I had to be very careful to not overbake. I baked for about 6-7 minutes and they came out perfection!!
