I love this sugar cookie recipe. I don't understand why it only has three stars. It makes fairly crunchy cookies, so if you're looking for something softer this definitely isn't it. If you plan on using the royal icing on them I recommend using a fondant rolling pin, if you have one, so they come out extra smooth and even. The flatter they are the easier they will be to ice. Not a big deal if you're just piping a few faces on them, but I've used this recipe for pretty elaborate cookies too.
This is the only receipe I use for sugar cookies. Tested it 2 years ago with cookies for my daughters wedding and used it ever since. Cookies always come out great, not runny. Involves a little bit extra time with the refridgeration and freezing, but it is worth it.
These cookies turned out perfect. I froze some and they turned out a little better than the ones I didn't freeze.
