My favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

I LOVE sugar cookies. I said in an earlier post, that to me, no Christmas is complete without the rolling out, baking, and decorating of sugar cookies!!! I grew up with my mom's delicious Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Recipe. CLASSIC!! These are a thinner version that shows the shape of cookies really well. Last year, my gal pal Julie brought over cookies one night to snack on while we played Settlers of Catan...yes, I am THAT kind of a girl. (I LOVE that game...for the first hour, then I just want someone to win and end my misery...I seldom win!!!) ANYWAYS, her sugar cookies were something else, soft and really fluffy...they remind me of Lofthouse cookies. I like using this recipes on cookie orders because they are still fresh and soft after 5 days! Here are some pictures of some cookies I did 2 weeks ago for a clients' aunts 80th Birthday! In Romania they would say "La Multi Ani!!". Which means to your many years! Happy Birthday Auntie, hope you liked your cookies! My client brought me some scrapbook paper she used in party decorations to help inspire me. I hope she liked what I came up with! I took pictures of the cookies next to the paper.
