Best Sugar Cookies EVER

Sometimes finding The Brighter Side is as simple as a delicious treat.  So we have a treat for you!  This is a recipe that I get asked for all the time.  I'll admit, when it comes to baking, I'm not the best.  Especially cakes.  But these cookies have been a hit EVERY TIME!  You can't mess it up.  The decorating is my favourite part.  I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my children do... and my husband!
