This Drop Sugar Cookies recipe is my go to sugar cookies at my house! I love this recipe because not only is it super simple, but it can be modified to make it gluten free, or dairy free if need be. The best part is you aren’t sacrificing taste or flavor by doing it!
My kids and hubby gobble these up every time I make them. This recipe is a keeper!
