I've been baking sugar cookies for years now and every single year I tell my husband "this is the last time that I ever make sugar cookies" and the next year I always make them anyway. Sugar cookies have always been time consuming and I was never satisfied by how they turned out.
This year was different. Loïc, my little 3 and a half year old wanted to help out. He loved putting flour all over the table and pressing the cookie cutters against the dough to make shapes appear. We had so much fun. I guess that's the trick, sugar cookies are not meant to be made alone. Now I know
These sugar cookies are soft and cakey. They will keep their shape but also puff up just enough to make your mouth happy.
