best sugar cookies

Allow me to introduce you to the very best sugar cookie of your LIFE. I'm serious guys. AND I have backers who will support me in this statement....I handed heaps of them out to friends at church and they gobbled them right up and were all like THESE ARE THE BEST SUGAR COOKIES!

Now I did not make this recipe up. I discovered these cookies when I was in Salt Lake City at ALT. I had one bite and was like THESE ARE THE BEST SUGAR COOKIES I'VE EVER HAD. They're thick and not overly hard and have the yummiest icing....mmmmmmmm the magic of butter and sugar. They're famous in Utah so if you're ever round those parts, be sure to stop by Swig Stop to get one! 

The best sugar cookies of your life!

I got the recipe from Vintage Revivals but I made a couple adjustments...mine needed to be baked for 10 minutes and I used three drops of red food colouring instead of one! They're incredible easy to make and you don't need a ton of ingredients (except A LOT of butter and icing sugar, ha!) so I hope you make them!

Happy baking and happy Monday! It's the rest of my weekend...yaaaaay!
