Sugar Cookies!

Hey everyone-Happy Seasonal Sunday! Today I'm sharing a sugar cookie recipe that is very good, and even better sprinkled with sugar or decorations.
Update: Ma stopped by and thought these were very tasty!
I'll give you my notes first this time:
  1. A half batch would make approx 32-36 chick size cookies.
  2. This is not an overly sweet dough, which makes it nice with sprinkling of sanding sugar.
  3. These cookies puff up a lot, the simpler the cutter, the better.
  4. I rolled the dough out on parchment with wax paper on top before chilling it. Then used the cutters and removed the excess dough. Then I chilled the dough in the freezer and moved each cookie to give it a little more space.
Kathleen, notice my bunny? It's the pancake mold! I used it as a cookie cutter. I figured if I was only going to have one cookie... I wanted A COOKIE:@)
Hope you love them if you try them!
