    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    This is my absolute favorite sugar cookie recipe. These cookies are so moist. They remain fresh-tasting for two weeks after baking, where a lot of sugar cookie recipes I've tried turn crunchy and brittle after a day or two. Please note that in the ingredients, the amount of flour may be a bit off. You may need to use more or less flour than indicated for desired consistency. Much of the time, my family doesn't use measurements. Grandma Shadduck advised on the recipe card, "Use enough flour to make dough stiff enough to roll out well, and roll them out thick to keep cookies soft." Give these a try. They're delicious!
