Blue Ribbon Recipe

An adorable and festive sugar cookie for the holidays that tastes like pure Christmas. These are classic sugar cookies that are a little crisp around the edges and chewy in the center. There's just a hint of rum flavor without the harsh alcohol taste. This a delicious cookie to add to your holiday cookie collection that's a little different than the average sugar cookie.
