When you make this recipe, you will notice how soft and chewy sugar cookies are. But if you want you can bake them a little bit more to get them on the crunchy side.

The Best Sugar Cookies You’ll Ever Make

The dough that you get is suitable for any type of cut-out cookies that you like and can hold a lot of icing/frosting. For this particular recipe, I like using my lemon icing, but you can also use royal icing if you want (Get the recipe for The Lightest Royal Icing Here).

While making this recipe, you might notice that your dough is a little bit sticky, which can happen if your egg is really large. Don’t be alarmed, all you need to do is add a little bit more of flour. When measuring the flour, don’t pack your cup, or the dough will be too dry. If that happens just add a small amount of water (a teaspoon at a time) until you get the right consistency. The consistency should be like the play-doh.
