ACTUAL conversation with my 7 year old daughter this morning:

Her: Hey mom, can you do my laundry today? It has to be TODAY.
Me: *all happiness leaving*
Her: Because I need more socks for Friday.

Me: Friday is three days away. I can do your laundry tomorrow or even Thursday.
Her: And it will be done by Friday?!!

WHAT MAKES SUGAR COOKIES SPREAD??!
I'm not sure if you know this...but I make chocolate sugar cookies. I've made chocolate sugar cookies using the same recipe for a reallllllly long time. My recipe is solidly in the no-spread camp. But that doesn't mean that it will come out perfect 100% of the time. A really good, really solid recipe is only PART OF THE EQUATION.

If you are struggling with sugar cookies that spread, read the nine tips below and start baking with confidence!
