Giant Soft Sugar Cookies - Printable Recipe

Giant Soft Sugar Cookies...are there four sweeter words?!

Excluding chocolate chip cookies, these are my favorites!

We have a local grocery store that sells giant sugar cookies, 
six to a plastic box. When the kids were little, it would be a 
treat to buy a box so we each would get one giant cookie.

Then we found this recipe...and OH are they good...and soft!

As you can see from the title, the cookies are to be made
giant, larger than your average cookie, but I promise the
cookie police will not show up at your door if you choose
to make them regular size. (:

They just seem a bit more special when you can fill up 
a plate with four cookies.
