Sugar cookies, a la Monica Gellar

My husband, Rob, texted me the other day that the national,chain where he got his iced coffee had sugar cookies too. They looked good, he thought, but were probably dry. I said yes, probably. I think he was dropping a hint that he would like a sugar cookie. I felt lile Monica in a “Friends” episode..being challenged to make a better cookie than a billion dollar company. So voila, here are a dozen. He can eat one and I take the rest to work.
