I make a lot of sugar cookies. In my opinion they are the perfect treat for almost any occasion. I love how versatile they are! Need cookies to celebrate a wedding, a new baby, the arrival of spring - don't worry if you have the right cookie cutter - or a basic cookie cutter and a good imagination sugar cookies have your back. No matter the shape my favourite way to enjoy them is still warm unfrosted from the oven. I love them and all of their sweet buttery goodness! This particular recipe is perfect for spring and summer. The addition of lemon zest gives the cookies a lovely light citrusy flavour. These cookies hold their shape well when baked which makes them perfect for cut out cookies.
