This is the recipe that has been in our family and now my sisters and I all make this each Christmas. Could be made for any holiday!!! We then make a buttercream frosting and divide it into different bowls and add different colored food coloring drops to them. My mother always made the dough and cut out the cookies and baked them. The kids all got to frost and decorate them together. Hope you and your family enjoy them. NOTE: Time doesn't include chill time required to make dough workable.
