“I received this recipe - called Sugar Cookies - in a cookbook from my mission president and his wife. It was in a family cookbook given to us as a wedding present. I call it Versatile because these make great drop cookies as well as rolled out sugar cookies. Serving sizes and yield are approximate. Who actually counts the cookies while baking? Especially if there are children present? lol Baking time does not include refrigeration time. Cooking time is also approximate for the whole batch.”
