    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    I had made sugar cookies for more years than I want to count and never changed the recipe. But then one day, a lady at our church made this recipe for the kids at the Christmas program. My husband tasted them and told me to get the recipe. I rebelled at changing, but to please him, I tried them. Now, these are all I ever make. They are wonderful. I do use Crisco (shame on me because of the type of fat.) The lady said she had tried, and I did too, butter, and also half butter and half Crisco, but they didn't come out the same, but with the Crisco they are yummy.

      I made these for Christmas this year and they came out great. My 4 year old daughter helped me with the entire process and had a ball doing it!
