Old Fashioned Soft Sugar Cookies for Spring!

I was so excited that so many of my Quilting/Blogging friends were coming to Quilt Market this past weekend... I wanted to do a little something for them.

So I decided to bake some of my "famous" Sugar Cookies! 
Sugar Cookies

I was asked many times to post the recipe.... {I forgot that I'd already posted it a while go} But here it is again... 

My mom made these every holiday while we were growing up.... I'm pretty sure the recipe came from a Betty Crocker cookie cookbook.  Mom? yes?  no?

Thank for posting your recipe. I love those soft sugar cookies; my grandmother always made them. That table runner is really cute. I'm on my way to look over the pattern.
