Amish Sugar Cookies with Link Up

Christmastime brings the desire to make sugar cookies. Unfortunately I do not do well with cut out cookies. Somehow the dough always sticks to the counter, add to that the fact that the sweetness makes my teeth ache and that means I don’t make them often.

I LOVE this recipe that was shared with me a few years ago, though I’ve never come across it again. These cookies are soft and chewy, and there is NO refrigeration or cut outs included in this recipe! YAY! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
