Personal Notes:
This is my mom's favorite sugar cookie recipe and claims that she will never eat a sugar cookie without Orange Juice Frosting. This past Christmas I made a different sugar cookie recipe and used Cream Cheese Frosting, I couldn't figure out what I did wrong, it just doesn't taste like Christmas without some of my mom's Orange Juice Frosting.
