Mom's Sugar Cookies
December 26, 2016

Every year I make sugar cookies for my kids for Christmas, and every year I HATE it. The dough sticks, it breaks, i have to roll it too much and it gets tough. Not this year! These were great. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 butter flavored crisco. I didn't have the entire 3 hours to wait, so they only got 2. We wanted to roll them, and honestly the dough was easier to work with when warm. The cold dough was too brittle to roll. We made a double batch, and had it perfect by the last few trays. Rolled out a little thicker than 1/4" and undercooked them just ever so slightly (7minutes). Perfect. I think next time instead of almond, I will use lemon extract or zest. This is my new go-to sugar cookie recipe.
