    k k Nye's Note:

    My Grandmother taught me this recipe when I was very young. Now, I can't go a Christmas without making these cookies! I usually make a double batch of these and pass them out to everyone, but here's the recipe for a single batch. You can also use this recipe for ANY holiday, not just Christmas.

    6. 6
      Cut the dough to holiday shapes and place on an ungreased pan. (The cookies do not expand very much while cooking, so you can place them close together.).
    7. 7
      Here's where you can use the egg white! Spread the egg white over the top of the cookie and add sprinkle if you would like, or leave them plain and add frosting later!

      Let cookies cool completely before adding any frosting.

      I have been making these cookies for many years. I originally found the recipe in one of those cooking magazines, which you'll find near the checkout counter at your grocery store... Pillsbury's Simply From Scratch Recipes Volume 3 (1981). Now-a-days, I mainly use this recipe to make my Valentine heart-shaped cookies for Valentine's Day, and will use a 3-inch cookie cutter. In the end you will get 66 heart shaped cookies. This recipe makes for one heck of a sugar cookie, which you will enjoy! If you love cream cheese, and sugar cookies, you will LOVE this cookie recipe.
