You are so lucky be visiting me today, because I have a gigantic batch of perfectly soft(ish) sugar cookies for you! You’re welcome. You know how traditional sugar cookies, like the ones we decorate at Christmas, are hard and crunchy? Then at the other end of the spectrum we have those crazy soft, over flour-y, Lofthouse sugar cookies? Don’t get me wrong, those both have a place in my heart. Actually, if I’m being honest, the crunchy traditional kind don’t really. They’re fun to decorate, but they’re not very easy or fun to eat.
When we decided to make cookie decorating favor bags for Abby’s birthday party, I went on a quest to find a softer, but not too soft sugar cookie. Something that would hold it’s shape while baking, hold up further in a favor bag and the hands of a bouncing 9 year old on the car ride home, would be easy to decorate, but also easy and enjoyable to eat. Well, I found it! And I’m sharing it in the recipe card below! Again, you’re welcome.
