Sweet Spring Sugar Cookies

If you're like me, than sugar cookies are probably your go-to recipe when it comes to large-batch baking.

Made with a few ingredients that are always on hand, these supremely soft treats are extra tasty with a little home made icing and sprinkles.

If you haven't got the time to decorate, just top them with a little confectioner's sugar and away you go!
