How to Make Strawberry Sugar Cookies?

Having a chewy sugar cookie will require a few tips to make the perfect texture and softness. When making a sugar cookie, a big factor in finding a great texture is by watching how long you bake it. Other things like butter and the sugar you use will decide the chewiness of the sugar cookie. You will want to make sure to bake the recipe for the correct time, use white sugar, and make it with unsalted butter.

Do I Need to Chill The Dough?
