Melt in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies

Bakery style melt in your mouth iced sugar cookies

My friend Jamey emailed me the other day about Blue Chip Cookies, asking if I had them when we lived in KC. Of course I did! The irresistible melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies are slathered with icing, and were all too convenient to some of my favorite lunch spots! I had to try to forget they were there every time I went shopping.

Jamey’s not-so-subtle reminder had me wondering why I had never attempted to recreate them before. Unfortunately, I couldn’t taste test these side by side, but after 3 attempts, I achieved melt in your mouth sugar cookies. Are you ready for this?
