Sugar Cookies

What's Halloween without sugar cookies?  Really, it would be the pits if I couldn't make myself sick from eating why too many of these scrumptious, I made them and they are pretty dang good.  So good, in fact, that I made myself sick from eating too many of them. :)  The recipe is from, they really have an excellent selection of recipes. The dough is perfect to work with, just like sugar cookie dough should's soft, doesn't crumble, easy to roll out and cut out shapes--and the shapes are easily moved to the cookie sheet for baking! It's perfect!  The cookies themselves are nice and soft, just the way I like, enjoy!
