Giant Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are a  classic, but there are so many variations of them. Chewy, crunchy, crispy, soft, puffy, etc. How could I ever choose a favorite? I love them all.

I am always on the search for a good sugar cookie recipe. When I went to New York, a long time ago, I remember getting a giant sugar cookie and I kept seeing them in all the little bakeries. They were covered with sprinkles and were huge, soft and so tasty. So I have tried many different recipes. This recipe is not really like the New York ones, but they are so good in their own way. 
These cookies are crispy and chewy. The sanding sugar adds even more crunch on top. 

Martha, Martha, Martha! She always has the best recipes. Whenever I google search for a recipe, I always end up on marthastewart.com.
