“This recipe was given to me by a lady from Texas about 25 yrs. ago. It is the best sugar cookie recipe I have ever tasted, and the response to it from others who have eaten it has been similar to my experience. I have never tried to ice it or make shapes from it. It's just good on its own. This is a double recipe - because that is how it was given to me.”
72-84 cookies
