the super secret family sugar cookie recipe!

So my sweet friend Lori made me and my children some adorable sugar cookies. While I was eating mine, she told me how she came across the recipe. While she was in college her room mate made some wonderful soft, moist sugar cookies. When Lori asked for the recipe, the roommate refused, claiming it was a super secret family recipe. Although annoyed, Lori respected the roommates wished and left it alone. No sooner later that another roommate offered the holder or the super secret family sugar cookie recipe 50 dollars for a copy of the recipe. The greedy roommate agreed, and accepted the money in exchange for the recipe. Lori disgusted by the roommates acceptance of the money, realized the that the recipe wasn't so super secret after all, and decided to sneak into her room and steal the recipe for herself. I guess you could say it was kind of like civil disobedience.
So thank you to Lori and her bravery for sharing this recipe, because they are good!
