    dozey doats's Note:

    These cookies are a tradition at our house. they make a lot, and the thinner you roll them the better they are. The dough is very forgiving, the more you roll out the scraps, the better they are. Make sure you have some "helpers" in the kitchen when the dough is chilled and ready. These are a really fun Christmas Cookie, and the mistakes get eaten quickly! Make sure you use plenty of flour to roll them out. We frost them or use food coloring and paint them with our special "cookie brushes". Makes a great hands on "cookie making day" for even the youngest bakers in the family!
