17. Best Sugar Cookies

I like sugar cookies with a heap ton of frosting. But not just any sugar cookies… because that tube of stuff you get from the refrigerated section of the store and that nasty frosting you get from the baking aisle? NO WAY MAN. If I’m going to eat cookies, they better be… well, better than that. Simple ingredients, nothing weird that I can’t pronounce, and plenty of sugar and butter. And these have PLENTY of both.
