Nana's Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies are traditional and classic.  They are the softest and chewy cookie.  Ever. Sugar cookies have been around for a long time. July 9th is National Sugar Cookie Day. I imagine they have because it is a simple recipe with simple ingredients

You can dress up or down a sugar cookie, depending on your liking.  My mom has always added a simple powdered sugar icing on the top. This time I did the icing, kept some plain and rolled some dough in sprinkles.  

It was hard to keep the kids away when I was making the cookies!

Hi I made your sugar cookies and they are wonderful. I put them in a airtight container and put them in the fridge. Should I bring them to room temperature before I decorate them with royal icing?
