Low-Carb Sugar Cookies on a baking sheet

 

Of course, one of the classic cookies popular this time of year are sugar cookies. Sugar cookies were always my favorite cookies to make as a kid. I loved rolling out the dough and cutting it into shapes. I remember watching them bake through the oven door. the best part, of course was decorating them.
