    Carrie Richman's Note:

    I have been using this recipe all of my adult life. It's a sugar cookie that my HS friends from 30 years ago still say today "I remember the sugar cookies your Mom used to make. They're the best!" I like to add color to my sugar that is used to top the cookie. You can't eat just one!

      Delicate, light, perfect flavor. They look like they'll be too oily when you make them up, but don't worry. They're not. Just the right amount of sweetness.
