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.
After making up your cookie dough you will drop by walnut sized spoonfuls into sugar and roll. I use about 1/3 cup of sugar and like adding in a tablespoon or so of colored sugar.
The next step is my daughters favorite. Take a glass and press each cookie.
They will be slightly smooched
Then you bake at 425* for 6-8 minutes
and then voila! You have these nice, soft Sugar Cookies!
