From my neighbor - each year we trade plates of Holiday cookies - she gave me this basic recipe for a basic cookie mix and five recipes that use the mix probably a good 15 years ago. It's a real time saver! You can even make it up and use it year round if you have a houseful of cookie hounds.

I think she got the recipe in one of those little holiday cookie cookbooks by Pillsbury you find at the grocery store check out during the holidays.
