Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

I got a wonderful cookie cookbook when we got married. It is a Betty Crocker Cookie Book. My DH and I have been making this for years for all of our friends and workplaces and church. This is loved by all. We always frost these with buttercream frosting.

I'm not so sure about this recipe. It was definitely easy to make, but the dough for me was very crumbly and hard to work with, and the taste of the cookies was just ok, not too great. I don't think I'll make these again. I'm not much of a baker, so maybe it's just me...
