World's Best Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by YungB

I am so particular about my sugar cookies. Anyway, after trying many different recipes, I have to say I like this one. It was from the Los Angeles Times "My Best Recipe". I have used this recipe for many years now. Please try it out and tell me what you think. These are crispy not the soft kind. The yield is estimated since it depends on how large your cookies are.

Great recipe! It hard to find a really good sugar cookie that isn't too "overwhelmingly" sweet. These are perfect for frosting - if you don't have people waiting for them the minute they are cool enough to pick up! LOL!!! Thanks YungB! I will make these again soon! Made for 2009 Spring PAC Edited to add - the amount of granulated sugar is not listed, so I used equal amounts of powdered sugar and granulated sugar. Which was perfect. :)
