I really appreciate all this good advice. Making and baking cut-out sugar cookies for christmas is a tradition with us since before my kids were born. Now that they are both teenagers, they still look forward to every christmas season so that we can all get together and decorate the cut-out cookies. My favorite of course is santa.
I really can't wait untill I can try out the recipies above. I'm always looking for a good cookie recipie that is easy to make (for my skill level).
