This is, hands down, the best soft sugar cookie recipe, complete with Amazing cream cheese frosting. So much better than store-bought! Doesn't have to be cream cheese frosting though, could be vanilla or buttercream.
This post contains a lot of text and photos because I want you to succeed at baking and decorating cut-out sugar cookies. I include step-by-step instructions with photos below the recipe. I don't normally give my recipe titles adjectives or superlatives.
