The Perfect Sugar Cookie Recipe & Wedding Dress Cookies

Finding the perfect recipe can be challenging and expensive.  I tried 5 different sugar cookie recipes before I decided to open my personal cookbook to try my Great Auntie Alice's sugar cookie recipe.  I should have stuck with family recipes because this one did exactly what I wanted.  As you can see in the pictures, the cookies did not expand too much and the cookies were able to hold their shape!  Plus the recipe is delicious!  Not too sweet and not too buttery, it is perfect!

For my bridal shower, I wanted to give something to all the ladies that attended. I decided to go with wedding dress cookies and I also did little bouquets with the dresses.  Tyler helped fill the cookies white royal icing and I conquered the minimal decorations.  You can kind of see the finished product in the picture below.  The cookies are in a clear plastic bag.

  1. I still haven't tried the full effect with the icing on them. The cookies are perfect. Chewy and I can't taste TOO much butter. Of course, they taste so good because I helped fill a couple. :)
