Favorite Sugar Cookies #Recipe

by - 10:38 AM

We (my daughter and I) made this today and it was really really yummy! The cookie cutters are from my daughter's Godma and they just arrived via airmail from Singapore! Noticed that I added 5 cups of flour instead of 4 cups and 2 tablespoons. I found the dough as indicated in the original recipe was too soft and hard to handle with these cute cookie cutters even after chilling it for 1 hour. However, I really love this recipe which was passed down through the generations of many an American family and I read that this one is from Sally. This sugared cookie recipe was adapted from Pioneer Woman
