The words for today are crispy and chewy. As in these sugar cookies.
The other two words for today are plain and simple. As in these sugar cookies.
This was a very non-fussy (no mixer required) recipe. Came out perfect. If you are looking for a simple, reliable, non-frosted, sugar cookie, this one fills the bill. For those times when you aren't looking for salty/sweet, or tart, or tender/cakey, or chocolate.... this crispy and chewy cookie is just right. So good after dinner with a cup of tea.
P.S. This recipe made exactly 24 big sugar cookies. Just like the recipe said it would. I never get the same amount of cookies as a recipe says I will. I know you are thinking if I didn't eat so much cookie dough I would but I am not a raw cookie dough eater. Angie told us when we were kids that if we ate raw cookie dough we would get worms. I took her at her word.
oops... meant to post the recipe for those interested. I am blaming in on pre-vacation brain.
