Merry Christmas! When I was growing up we had a tradition of making rolled sugar cookies every Christmas. The recipe I am sharing today is the recipe my family has used for decades. I have no idea where the recipe originated but I remember my grandmother and mother making them and I did the same with my children when they were young. This year I baked them with my daughters and two of my three grand children for the first time, but we added a little twist to the family tradition.
