The quest for the perfect sugar cookie

Okay, so begins my quest for the perfect sugar cookie. My wife and I don't share many hobbies so we've decided to take up cookie baking/decorating. I'll bake, she'll decorate. That means I have to find an adequate sugar cookie recipe for decorating (something I've never been able to do). Going to start with an old church book recipe that we found this year and modify it until I get it right. Wish me luck.

PS: Once I find the best recipe I'm keeping it to myself. Suckers. Need to keep my edge so I can achieve that greatest of dreams, making it on the Great British Baking show.
