sugar cookie dough

I don’t know why, but I usually make this recipe for family events and holidays, so they are special in our family. Unlike chocolate chip version that can be too sweet, these chewy cookies come together very quickly and make one of those treats that you always happy to eat with your family.

I roll the homemade dough into balls and then add sugar to make the crispy coating. When the cookies are baked, the caramelized sugar is really delicious. You can skip on this step, but I urge you to try it at least once. It requires 5 more minutes of your time and it makes extremely delicious results.

This recipe is one of the most requested in our family, and everyone knows that I can make a delicious treat in no time at all.
