sugar cookies.

i have spent years looking for the most perfect sugar cookie recipe. the kind that has that nostalgic, childhood, buttery flavor we all remember. . . .and the kind that makes plump, soft cookies. it seems as though it would be such a simple thing to find. a cookie recipe. the recipe listed here most resembles the sort of cookies i have been wanting to make. i have used this for two years during holidays and the cookies always come out perfectly. it’s helpful to make the dough ahead of time — a couple of days before christmas — and it is wonderfulΒ to use for cutout cookies.
