Let's me start off by telling you that I'm the kind of girl who likes thick, cakey, soft sugar cookies.
I'm so not into the hard and thin kind of cookie.
The more the better!
This is my Mom's recipe and I have been using it since high school.
I used to make cookies all the time in high school.
That seems a little weird now,
but sometimes the truth is weird.
I bake these babies for pretty much every holiday.
Aniston LOVES to decorate cookies.
That's the best excuse I have.
