Cracked Sugar Cookies!

'Tis the Season for HOLIDAY BAKING!! I've been wanting to bake some cookies this week and Kenneth was asking for sugar cookies, so last night I pulled out an AllRecipes Recipe we have enjoyed before and whipped up this super fast and easy Sugar Cookie recipe! Kenneth likes SOFT sugar cookies, and this one always comes out beautifully. Depending on how sweet you like your cookies you could add another 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar but I like them the way they are with just a touch of sweet. They come out with lightly browned bottoms, gently cracked tops and are so soft!
