After making these soft and chewy sugar cookies the other day, I was craving the other kind - the kind you roll and cut out and decorate like mad. Only I didn't want to decorate them, I wanted kids to do that for me. So our nieces came over, and they and Jack made a huge, floury, glittery mess. If you're going to let kids decorate cookies, you have to accept the mess. Which is hard for me, but I managed to let go (even if I did follow them around with a broom).
I used this recipe, which was perfect. Not too sugary - a good thing when you know they will be smothered with icing, sprinkles and other sweet toppings. It also made enough cookies for a small army. Or the Duggar family. Can you imagine buying presents for all of your brothers and sisters if you were a Duggar? I mean, do you even know all of your brothers and sisters if you are a Duggar??
