Favorite Sugar Cookies

I LOVE Sugar Cookies. Growing up my grandmother’s recipe was the one we used and it was my favorite. But I realized it was my favorite because it was the one I had the most. As time has gone on I have have cookies from several other places. I would find thinks I liked also things I didn’t. The text would be good but it lacked flavor. The cookie was good but I didn’t like the frosting. So for the last couple of years I have played around with recipes for myself. I have finally nailed it. We found that this cookies are best 2 to 3 days after making them. It gives the frosting and cookie to become one amazing flavor.
