So on to these cookies. I've heard a lot of really great things about these from the "Our Best Bites" cookbook and website, but I've never actually tried making them. But recently I've been thinking about sugar cookies and how long it's been since I made them so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. These were hands down, the best sugar cookies I've ever had. They are so soft and chewy and the frosting is the best buttercream I've ever tried - way better than the Lofthouse cookie frosting or anything I've tasted from a bakery.
The dough was a little tricky to work with since it was crumbly and sticky all at the same time, but I found it was easiest to roll out between two pieces of parchment paper or two silicone baking mats. The frosting came together beautifully and was silky smooth. It's been so tempting to not eat the entire pan so I've been trying to give them away to my friends and neighbors. Let me know if you want any! :)
