Sugar Cookies


Another cookie recipe from my Gram, she had the best recipes.  This is the sugar cookie recipe I make when I have to make cookies for some event.  It makes A LOT of cookies!!! I halved the original recipe and it makes 5-6 dozen cookies.  Everyone LOVES these cookies (well everyone except me, there is no chocolate in sight so…but if you eat one with a handful of chocolate chips J ) and if you ignore the rolling and flattening they are easy to make. 

Children are definitely helpful, they can roll and flatten the cookies.  I put both of mine (plus one’s boyfriend) to work today and it was fun for all of us. 

The colored sugar really adds a festive touch to the cookie plate.

Only a little room left on the cookie plate!!!
