“I am so particular about my sugar cookies. Anyway, after trying many different recipes, I have to say I like this one. It was from the Los Angeles Times "My Best Recipe". I have used this recipe for many years now. Please try it out and tell me what you think. These are crispy not the soft kind. The yield is estimated since it depends on how large your cookies are.”
48 cookies
