Sugar Cookies

Makes 50 small cookies Prep Time 30 minutes   Cook Time 11 minutes   Rated:

This recipe came up trumps when we did a survey for Insider Club requests! So here it is! You are totally welcome. Sugar cookies are a thing of my American roots and I remember cookie decorating parties, which we actually thought about filming, but seriously ran out of time...for a change. So you have this amazing recipe that works like a charm for decorating, gifting and hanging on the tree...and naturally, they taste good!

(The leaving in the fridge bit is essential! Don't be tempted to rush that part!)

Merry Sugar Cookies!
