These are the Holiday cookies I grew up with, we made them as a family when I was growing up, I made them with my daughter and now I make them with my grand kids, everyone LOVES them, not your everyday sugar cookie, there so much better. My Mom gave me the original recipe, from a 1967 McCalls Magazine, as you can see it's been through a lot!

  2. Roll chilled dough 1/8 in thick on a well floured surface. cut into fancy shapes and bake on regressed cookie sheets. Bake at 350 8-10 minutes or until slightly brown around the edges ( I like then chewy so I stay closer to 8 min) remove to cooling rack, cool completely before decorating.
  3. for glaze, blend confectioners sugar into 1 slightly beaten egg white, add melted butter,salt and extract, beat until smooth . if too thin add more sugar. Divide glaze into several parts and tint with desired food coloring, apply glaze to cookies with decorating tubes or paint brushes, load the kids with sprinkles and take lots of pictures!
