These soft and tender sugar cookies will become a new favorite
     I have a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipes in my collection, but I do not have a sugar cookie recipe. This is simply because I do not have as high of a demand from the people surrounding me (my family). 
     But one of my sisters does occasionally make a request for sugar cookies. She likes them to be soft, but on the chewier side, maybe a little crispness on the edges. But not crunchy! And more on the flat side, not big puffy cookies. 
     These specifications arose from the affinity she has with the sugar cookies from a sandwich place around here (I won’t say the name of it, because I don’t know if I’m allowed to…?). 
     My hope is that these cookies will be reminiscent of those ones… and they are! I was very happy with how these turned out, and my sister was as well!

Notes about this recipe:

  • Start out with a small amount of sugar for rolling the cookies, as to try to prevent wasting it, maybe a couple tablespoons. Add more, if needed.
