    Ellen Brody's Note:

    This is a recipe from my mom. I have not found one I like better yet. If you bake just right they come out soft and puffy! You can use this for any holiday just change the cutter and colored sugar.

      Used this recipe to make up some quick cookies for Halloween. They turned out fluffy and slightly crisp on the outside (I used half margarine and half butter). At high altitude I baked the cookies for 7 minutes at a 1/4" inch thick. Exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

      These were great! I made them with my kids at Christmas time. The cookie dough was easy to work with, and the cookies taste great, and kept REALLY well!
