Sugar Cookies Recipe

Most of you who know me personally know that I swear by mom’s Sugar Cookies. They are the best yet that I have ever tasted and I crave them ALL THE TIME!! I shared the recipe last year and have had several readers tell me they are their new favorites. Not surprised, really. :)

Well, my mom likes to try new recipes and tried out a new Sugar Cookies recipe. All of us kids were a little skeptical to try them because we are huge fans of the classic cookies she makes. To our surprise, these cookies were DELICIOUS and very comparable in taste and yummy-ness to the other recipe. She was able to find the recipe from HERE and it’s not too different to our Class Sugar Cookies recipe. They are a little more cream cheese-y and less Almond Extract-y and are soft and perfect.

    When you say butter, are you using salted or unsalted?
