Are these soft ones? Everytime I try sugar cookies they are dry and hard. They look like they are great!

i made easter cut-out cookies with this recipe, sam actually brought some to church for his YM's class and it was a hit! they were soft and good. for the frosting, i was low on the powdered sugar and added a couple spoonfuls of cream cheese instead to the frosting .... sooo good. you can check out my cookies here www.turnitdownathousand.blogspot.com
