Try a different butter or recipe rather than modifying your recipe. For a long time I used my sugar cookie recipe, but recently I tried Julia ushers gingerbread recipe for making 3D projects. It’s delicious and makes beautiful cookies. It’s also very soft. Personally I ignore comments of too sweet. If you don’t want sweet don’t eat a sugar cookie or something covered in icing. Good luck!
@Econlady Yes, I will try Julia's sugar cookie recipe and ginger bread recipe both. Thanks again
