Thin Chewy Frosted Sugar Cookies
Sometimes I just crave a big chewy sugar cookies smothered with vanilla frosting & sprinkles. You know the ones I’m talking about…they are thin, chewy & oh so good!
In case you haven’t noticed yet, I have a thing for sugar cookies. They are one of my weaknesses. I can’t stop with just one. I love all kinds of sugar cookies. I’m always looking for another amazing sugar cookie recipe to put in my recipe box. I have already posted quiet a few of my tried & true favorites. They are are all very different & unique from one another but I love them all! I have shared my Amish Sugar Cookies, The Best Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookies, Old Fashioned Soft Sugar Cookies, Frosted Shortbread Cookies, etc.
To get them nice & thin you use the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar & flatten them down. You don’t have to flatten them down too much because they will flatten out more while they are baking in the oven.
I have a picky sugar cookie eater in the family…they are really hard to please. They don’t like cookies that are crispy or have any hard edges. With this recipe you don’t have to worry about crispness. They are soft & chewy through & through.
