Grandma Sheets' Sugar Cookies
March 06, 2003

These cookies are exactly what Kathy says - thick, not too sweet, but really, really soft and fluffy. Perfect for frosting. I halved the recipe and it made a dozen and a half 2 1/2 inch cookies, just the right amount. Since the dough was soft I just cut round cookies, though shapes would probably work well with this recipe, too. I also used shortening instead of butter because I like a lighter sugar cookie, and added a teaspoon vanilla. Since I live in Utah where the climate is dry, the amount of flour on the recipe was just right.
