Grandma's Sugar Cookies
These are great to roll out and bake to decorate for Christmas! Included is a "hard" frosting recipe. Simply delicious and a family tradition in our house for decades!"I made these cookies with my seven year old son. They were easy to make along with the frosting. They were so good that there were none left the following night. I love recipes that have been in the family for a long time. " - Teresa119
