I had a craving for sugar cookies this weekend and decided to try out a new recipe. I wanted something simple and easy. I just wanted plain-old sugar cookies- no need for frosting, sprinkles, etc. I found this great recipe on allrecipes.com submitted by Stephanie.
I followed the recipe exactly except for when it came for dropping the cookie dough. The recipe says to drop by rounded teaspoonfuls which I found to be too small. I ended up rolling rounded discs about 1 inch in diameter. The cookies don't spread very much, so they still remained pretty small, but they were the perfect size for me. Very cute looking. The taste came out great! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. The cookies are just sweet enough and don't need anything extra. Yum!
