This is a recipe for sugar cookies like they used to be! This recipe produces light fluffy cookies, that are slightly crisp on top & soft & tender in the centre. You can play around with the cooking times to get the texture you like. Eat them plain, with the frosting, the glaze or other icing. These cookies ae easy to make, just make balls & roll in sugar - no need for cutters! They also freeze well & the kids LOVE them! Our favourite way to make them is by rolling them in coloured sugar & cooking them on a foil lined tray for 8 minutes. If we decide to frost / ice them, we always skip the sugar rolling stage. If Time to make doesn't include chill time.
