Looking for Big Tender Sugar Cookie Recipe?I am looking for a sugar cookie recipe, not just any sugar cookie. When I was a teen (many,many years ago), my mother bought large decorated sugar cookies from a local woman. They were Santa heads about 1/2 inch thick, moist not crispy and had a really really good flavor. I have tried several recipes, but haven't found one that tastes like these. Anyone have a recipe that makes a delicious, tender cookie? Thanks in advance :)
