There are tons of sugar cookie recipes out there and I am sure there are many great ones. You just have to find the one that works for you. Really, I feel like I keep saying this, but it is so true…most everything is a lot of trial-and-error. And I am still learning!!
I REMEMBER the first time I made a batch of Halloween sugar cookies, I decided to use my healthier “wheat” flour…NOT a brilliant idea! They just didn’t taste as good…go figure! So I keep trying to PERFECT my cookies because I have learned that just throwing them in the mixer isn’t going to produce awesome sugar cookies. Anything from over mixing to not having your butter at the right temperature can change the type of cookie you end up with.
A recipe is just that, a recipe. Keep searching until you find one that works for you!
