Perfect Sugar Cookies Recipe @pinch

These really are the perfect sugar cookies! The cookie is not overly sweet, so whatever glaze or icing is used for decoration will sweeten it up. Depending on how thick the dough is rolled, will determine if the sugar cookie is crisp or chewy. We rolled the dough thin for a crisp cookie. If soft is what you like, roll the dough a little thicker. They are a great cut haveout cookie for a holiday. Kids can help cut shapes with cookie cutters and decorate. The BEST sugar cookies you will ever make. Great for cut haveouts and decorating! Depending on how thick you roll them out, they can be soft or crispy. Each time I bring these cookies somewhere new, I'm ALWAYS asked for the recipe.
