It's been a while since I posted a sugar cookie recipe, so here's one I made yesterday and wanted to share. At first I was on the fence. The cookies were okay, but not great. But after a full day of chilling, I baked up a second round and thought they were much better. Being made with shortening, they lack butter flavor and definitely need vanilla and salt to punch up the flavor, but the texture was pretty good.
If you try or have tried the recipe, let me know. They rave reviews on Recipezaar (or "Food.com" but I'm old school and like to call it "Recipezaar") where people swear they taste like the cookies at Paradise Bakery.
