This is a cut out sugar cookie recipe. It came from a friend of my grandmother. My siblings and I don't think it is Christmas without these cookies. I recently met the infamous Mary Rahm and found out that she never makes these cookies anymore. Her son wanted me to send him some the next time I make them.
