Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies
i cannot tell you how skeptical i was about this recipe. i've never been pleased with the consistency or taste of sugar cookies i and others have made in the past with passed down recipes. i like my cookies soft, slightly buttery and full of taste- not like cardboard!
this recipe is incredible. it's definitely the best, and will be replacing my recipe permanently. this was so easy to put together; it didn't take cream of tartar (which i never have!) and when i finished combining everything, i rolled out a bit without chilling it and it was the perfect consistency with no sticking to my well-floured counter. i put the remaining dough in the fridge while the cookies baked, but i found no difference- it rolled out perfectly either way. these cookies don't rise or spread very much, so you can be confident that whatever shape you cut will stay. i rolled mine a little thicker than recommended and i had wonderful, soft, tasty cookies that melted in my mouth when warm and stayed soft even the morning after sitting on an open plate on the counter! i just can't say enough about this recipe. there's nothing bad about it!
you may be skeptical, but just try it and you'll see!
