Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by GrandmaIsCooking

If you're in a hurry, form the dough into rolls (instead of rolling it out and cutting with a cookie cutter), refrigerate it, then slice thinly and cook for less time than the recipe calls for. Decorate as desired. This recipe came from my Home Ec class many years ago.
