There are so many different versions of sugar cookies today, but what I miss is the original sugar cookie without all of the artificial stuff or ton of sugar most people add. Ok, maybe they are sugar cookies per se but, the sugar cookies I remember from back in the day I have yet to find a recipe for. They should be light and crisp with a delicate buttery sugar taste that doesn't overwhelm your taste buds. Hopefully, my journey has ended with this

This is by far the best sugar cookie recipe I've used. Sooooo goooood. :)

I made these cookies for my christmas party with the family. Everyone loved them. My daughter was looking these up and she loves sugar cookies so she helped me make them.

I have made these cookies for years. They are very good. Easier to handle if you chill the dough and use a small cookie scoop.
