I've looked all around on the internet, and it is nearly impossible to find a drop sugar cookie recipe. Specifically, I'm looking for a thicker, soft, buttery cookie that actually is like a cookie and not cake. Like a bakeshop chocolate chip cookie, except sugar. I have a great chocolate chip cookie recipe, and have tried modifying to be a sugar cookie, but have not had great results. Most internet sugar/shortbread recipes are more of the rolled variety, and the ones that are not are usually dense and hard. I want something that I can ice that is very sweet, soft and buttery. Just some background, my chocolate chip cookies are a somewhat stiff dough and I like to stuff a 1/4 cup measuring cup with the dough and then turn them out onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. They keep their shape until there is just a couple minutes left on the bake, and do not deflate much after they are cooled. I'm kind of looking for the same results with these sugar cookies.
