“I found this recipe in Country Woman and decided to make it. I have not had any luck with making sugar cookies and having them be able to roll out. So I figured what the heck might as well give it a try. So I made them today and they turned out great and I was able to roll them out. I know that there is alot of sugar cookie recipes on here but I wanted to post this one so that I would able to find it again when I need it.”
