I love a good frosted sugar cookie once in a while as long as they are super soft. Anything hard and crumbly is just not my cup of tea. The store bought packaged sugar cookies in the plastic containers are one of the best. The sugar cookies are so soft and the icing is just the right amount of sweet.
I happened to come across this recipe that mentions that these were very close to the store bought versions. They looked thick and soft so I thought we’d see how they fair. They are yummy! I can’t believe how light and fluffy they are and oh so soft.
The only thing I would change is the size the recipe wants you to make these cookies. The original recipe wants you to use 1/4 cup of dough per sugar cookie! I made mine slightly smaller with a large cookie scoop and they are still very big cookies.
They take up my entire palm of my hand! Next time I will make them even smaller with my medium cookie scoop instead.
