Sugar Cookies

These buttery, sweet cookies are good frosted or not frosted. We happen to like them frosted. Once they set for a day, they are super moist, and perfect with a glass of milk. My husband started making these for me once we were married. Once we had children, they became their most favorite cookie. Sprinkles or no sprinkles, we feel you too will have these become a family favorite.
