On my 12 days of homemade Christmas I have a bunch of recipes which have been handed down. Today’s recipe for Sugar Cookies comes from my great-great grandma.While it is not a roll out sugar cookie recipe it is a recipe for a nice soft sugar cookie which has been rolled in sugar. It is a favorite cookie of my kids and I have made it for countless others over the years. I am sure your friends and family will like it also.
