Good Old Fashion Christmas Cookies Recipe

This is just a good old fashion Christmas cookie recipe. You can use the little cut outs and decorate them to different little shapes like stars, Christmas stocking, Rudolph, Santa and Christmas trees. Put on sprinkles or icing for decoration. Put them in a basket or a tin and give them out as a gift. Tie a bow around your tin or stick one on. These two photos can give you ideas of how you can dress up your cookies even more.
