As you can tell by the shape of my Christmas Cookie recipe, 
I have made this recipe many, many, many times.
In fact, I have been making this Christmas Cookie Recipe for over 35 years! 
This recipe has stood the test of time~
Like my son says, "These cookies taste like Christmas"

Note: I have always used canned frosting

Cookies, Christmas
