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?

    It could also encourage us to snack more throughout the
    day because you feel hungry. Furthermore, when a body obtains plenty of sleep abnormal cells can be healed.
    Since this is the last meal of the day, it is important to keep the calories lower because your activity level is reduced
    at night.
