The Best Sugar Cookies

My husband loves to make sugar cookies and decided he was on a quest to make the very best! He went so far to make sure it had all the right ingredients, as well as the right cooking time. Seriously, one year, we made sugar cookies almost every week for a month until he had perfected the best sugar cookie ever! Here it is!!

I had to share it since Thursday is Valentine’s Day! Nothing shows love more than a really good sugar cookie! My girls will beg their dad to make these so they can share them with their friends or if they want to impress someone! lol! This a perfect family activity! You get to create something that is so delicious and show your artistic side at the same time!
