Sugar crispies, ska the best sugar cookie in all of Texas.

A few weeks ago, we put out the call for your favorite holiday recipes. I received a few for yummy treats that I can't wait to bake, whether it be sometime this year or for a future Christmas. This recipe is perfect for the holidays, but it's also great for absolutely any time.

My crafting group had a cookie party a few weeks before Christmas. Darla, one of our faithful members, wasn't able to attend, but she offered to bake these special sugar cookies for us to decorate at the party. A few of the crafters had the pleasure of munching on these cookies at other events and raved about how fantastic they were.

These cookies are delicious, and super-fun to decorate. Unlike the sugar cookies that usually come to my mind (fluffy, thick, maybe even a bit chewy), these are crisp and oh-so-thin. They're amazing.
