Delicious Sugar Cookies

            Last Valentine's Day I got together with some amazing gals to frost about 75 or 100 heart shaped sugar cookies  to give to the ladies in my ward (church).  Shelly Burton was the baker who spent many hours slaving away baking in the kitchen.  All I did was help frost these delicious cookies and taste test them.  Shelly shared this recipe with me.  WARNING:  You may not want to try this recipe.  They are so good that you may regret ever trying these cookies.  You may end up eating more than anticipated, speaking from experience.
