Holiday Cut Out Sugar Cookies

 

You’ll have so much fun decorating Holiday Cut Out Sugar Cookies with the little ones.  The excitement in their faces is so precious, especially when they make and decorate these cookies all by themselves.  Some may look undefinable, but to them it’s like a Picasso.  Enjoy !

 

YIELD: The number of cookies this recipe yields depends on how thick you roll the dough and the size of the cookie cutter you use. If hoping to make dozens of cookies for a large crowd, double the cookie and icing recipes. I got 2 dozen small/medium cookies.
