The Best Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Every time I travel, I look immediately in the current city where I am in the bakery to see where the locals eat and, of course, where I can get some desserts. You know, for the investigation. #alltheresearch

But my town does not have any of that. We have a unique cupcake store, but the cupcakes are expensive and they play Michael Buble too much (I should know, I used to work there). Otherwise, it's Whole Foods or another supermarket bakery for your products.
But I want something authentic, somewhere that sells giant brownies and cookies the size of saucers. Is it a lot to ask? Apparently.
