Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are such tasty soft sugar cookies that my kids chose to ignore the lard factor and simply devour them. Sometimes I sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on the cookies before they go into the oven and sometimes I ice them once they are baked. It doesn't matter what I do they disappear.
