Mom's Cracked Sugar Cookies

This is a sugar cookie that you don't have to roll and cut. I always use a cookie scoop when making these. The last time I made them I had some organic cane sugar that I used to roll them in, it really seemed to add some extra sparkle to the finished cookies. The note my Mom had on the recipe is DO NOT double or flatten the cookies. The cookies will turn out slightly differently if you use a hand mixer or a big stand mixer. I use my KitchenAid stand mixer & bake the cookies for 10 minutes. They turn out flatter, slightly soft & chewy, just the way I like them. If you use a stand mixer you could chill your dough or add 2 tsp of instant clearjeI to it to stop the cookies from spreading as much. I think they would make a wonderful icecream sandwich.
