This is our cut-out-cookie recipe--- obtained from my husband's mother after we got married. It doesn't make too much dough, but can easily be doubled. One of our early marriage decisions (20 yrs ago) was to decide who's mother's recipe to use. Jim won- so he gets to make them! We make icing paint out of powdered sugar, milk, and food coloring and the kids get to paint the cookies. (about 1 cup pwdr sugar to 2 tsp milk- add the milk no more than a tsp at a time)
