Best Sugar Cookie Recipe the other day I posted a picture of this AWESOME sugar cookie. If you've been thinking about it ever since you saw it, then YEA (insert horn blowing sound here) here is the recipe. These cookies are my absolute favorite when nursing (you know how I am, "no chocolate until I'm done nursing!") Have fun cooking, and if you think they're SO GOOD then bring me some to show your appreciation. :) ok... I'm kidding to those who think I'm weird, but to those who think I'm being serious... BRING UM' ON!
