Sugar cookies or white cookies are soft in the inside with a little crisp on the outside. There are so many recipes for sugar cookies. These are a Christmas favorite cookies to make and share even though they are made year around. You can leave the cookies as is, sprinkle some colored sugar or add some frosting to jazz it up.
This time I made these cookies for a bake sale where my daughter and her friend were selling them to donate to Charity.
All the shaped cookies I made were gone before I get to take pictures.
