Crack Cookies

As I’m sure you know there are chocolate people and vanilla people. When given a choice I always pick chocolate be it cookies, ice cream or candy. But there is something about these plain vanilla cookies. I can not stop eating them. Once I eat one I can not stop. They are crack. The cookies are light, delicate and delicious. My mother got the recipe from a neighbor when I was a child. A few times a year she makes them, usually at Christmas or Valentines Day since she has cute cookie cutters for those holidays. I particularly enjoy these cookies when they are quite browned. I hope you enjoy them too. Just be warned: Once you have one you will want more.

    And I am sure they are double crack when using my fav sugar cookie icing with cream cheese in it. Thanks a lot! You are not helping my waist line!

    Those are Mary’s Sugar Cookies from Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book. Those are the only sugar cookies we make in my family. My mom has the original 1963 cookbook and I have a 2002 reprint of it that I treasure immensely. I highly recommend the whole book.
