I've always been a sucker for a good sugar cookie.

They've been my absolute favorite since childhood and I always love making and eating them.

Today's recipe is for an amazing French Butter Cookie! I found this original recipe in an old church cookbook, made a couple small tweeks and am now sharing them with you today!

These cookies were a hit at our house!

My boyfriend, my daughter and I all devoured them. They're amazing warm from the oven because they're nice and soft. After they cool, they get this crispy texture from the butter that makes them even more delicious.

My daughter took them to school in her lunchbox. They're SO much better than the store bought cookies she usually gets.

Baking isn't usually my favorite thing to do, so she tends to get store bought cookies often. I really need to take some extra time on Sundays and just bake a batch of cookies for the week. I'd save money and of course homemade is always better!

I absolutely love finding recipes in old church cookbooks!

To reduce my ever growing cookbook collection, I now take photos of individual recipes and store them in a private album on Pinterest.

It's so much faster and easier to scroll through the photos on Pinterest, that way you only have recipes you want, and if you add titles to the pins, they will show up in your personal search results.

Plus, if you have a million cookbooks like me, it reduces clutter and you can choose to only keep your favorite cookbooks and donate the rest to a Little Free Library or thrift store.

I'm all about minimizing clutter these days and want to live a simpler life with less stuff!
