The Best Sugar Cookie Recipe Ever

Sugar Cookies

These little beauties, I cut out with a small circle cutter and then cut a tiny heart out of the centers of half of the circles using a mini cutter. I cooked and cooled them.  Then I sandwiched the frosting in between for a sweet sandwich cookie.

Soft, delicious, perfect sugar cookies every time.  The use of a Secret Ingredient does the trick!  After making these beauties, you will be remembered for these cookies.  Be prepared to be asked to make them for future occasions.  I got this recipe from a friend of a friend of a friend, I’m not sure where it began!
