Chez Gordy ‘Sugar Cookies’ Tips:
  1. Be creative, for instance, try adding your favorite nuts to each cookie.
  2. Similarly, enhance the flavor by replacing lemon juice with any preferred fresh fruit juice.
  3. You can also use the drop cookie method instead of rolling the dough. Use a tablespoon to spoon the dough onto the baking pan/stone. Next, pat the palm of your hand in flour and flatten each ball of dough.
  4. Most importantly, have fun!
