My mom made up this sugar cookie recipe a long time ago.I remember making these at Christmas and my sister and I couldn't wait to decorate them.Now my girls make their grandma's recipe with their kids and bring them to our family's Christmas partyThe first thing they tell her is "Hey Grandma we made your cookies." Seeing her smile is the best gift of all.
