We are not even going to attempt to sugar code the following: 'tis the season of sugar cookies, cookie cutters, sprinkles and baking extravaganza, so get ready! We find that kids can be creative with a simple dough, just give them the right baking tools and endless sprinkle options. That said, we can't get enough of the below Sugar Cookie recipe - simple, versatile, scrumptious!
Nice And Easy Sugar Cookies
