I make frosted sugar cookies every year for Valentine's Day. I think I've documented them on here every year too. I even had a former co-worker message me last week saying she was missing them. So sweet of her!
This year I used a recipe from All Recipes called "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies." The are delicious. Couldn't get enough of them delicious. Diet was on hold until they were gone delicious.
You will notice that the first step is to cream 3 sticks of butter with two cups of sugar, so that's probably the secret duo of ingredients right there. They are decadently sweet, but worth it for a special sweet occasion. I used canned strawberry frosting because I love it.
My not fancy frosting job
I would put these close to J. Rae's in terms of deliciousness of the actual cookie. Now if I could just figure out their frosting!
