I recently had a few friends and their families over for a Cookie Decorating Party. I made all the cookies and the guests brought the toppings (icing, frosting, sprinkles). It was the day before Halloween so of course the cookies were in the shape of ghosts, cats and pumpkins.
I wanted to try a new recipe this year because the recipes I used in the past always ended with thin cookies that were too hard. So I was on the search for some great tasting, thick and chewy sugar cookies that were easy to cut-out into shapes. After going to several websites and reading tons of reviews I decided on Alton Brown's Sugar Cookie Recipe on foodnetwork.com. They were delicious and everyone loved them.
So, if you plan to make holiday cookies to share with friends and neighbors this upcoming season, I highly recommend this recipe! I know I'll be using it this December. Enjoy!
