Worlds Best Sugar Cookie


What sets this Sugar Cookie recipe apart is it contains powdered sugar and it is fabulous! You can make cutout cookies with it but keep in mind the dough does spread a bit, although not terribly. I have very successfully made many cutout cookies with this recipe. Give it a try and I am sure you will love them as much as we do.

Love this cookie recipe. The cookies come out great everytime and everyone loves them.. They freeze well too.. I ran out of time once and placed some in a ziploc bag and froze them.. AND FORGOT about them..Hubby found in the freezer one nigh While looking for cake scraps and said they were GREAT EVEN AFTER 6 MONTHS... I tried one and yep he was right.. tastes just like they were baked.. really...


GREAT RECIPE! I made one batch of this and got about 75 3inch star cookies out of it. I use powdered sugar on the rolling pin and roll the dough out on parchment paper, since it can become sticky. i always use this recipe bc the cookies stay moist and soft. people go craaazy over them :-)
