Swig Sugar Cookies. There are so many things to say. I usually eat sugar cookies just because I like to eat frosting and I'm less embarrassed about my obsession with frosting if its on a cookie, but these cookies... Oh these cookies... They are so soft, sweet, and the edge is a little crispy because of the sugar around it. Amazing! The frosting is a little tangy, sweet, and creamy. The combination makes it my favorite, non-cookie cutter, sugar cookie. I'm going to go make another batch right now cause I can't stop thinking about them!
