For as long as I can remember, my mother's best friend, Debbie, has been making the WORLDS BEST SUGAR COOKIES! Sadly for me, I have to wait until the occasional Thanksgiving or Christmas to eat the WORLDS BEST SUGAR COOKIES! I even asked for them as a birthday gift once. When Debbie knows I'm coming, she always makes some extra just for me. I hoard these cookies like Scrooge McDuck (did you like that childhood reference), portioning them out, and nibbling them, until sadly they are all gone.
Lately, I've been hounding my mother to get the recipe for me. It's really the icing that makes these cookies as fantastic as they are. Finally she came through for me.
I used the following recipe for the sugar cookies. (Notice, they aren't the WORLDS BEST just yet).
