Our favorite, most requested recipe ever....Sugar cookies with soft no chill dough.Jump to Recipe Print Recipe
The perfect sugar cookie
I am not sure what it is about sugar cookies but I am obsessed with them! This sugar cookie recipe is a crowd favorite because it is easy to make, the cookies are tender, and the taste is out of this world!! A light buttery taste you can't beat.
Our family loves the sugar cookies from the Mini Bazaar in Idaho Falls, ID. One time Cassie's husband Rex ate a whole plate of them.... let's just say he doesn't eat sugar cookies anymore.
