Wanda's Cut Out Christmas Cookies

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by yooper

My best friend Darrell's mother, Wanda makes these every Christmas. This is the best rolled sugar cookie I've ever tasted! They are so light and delicate, they practically melt in your mouth! I have no idea how many this recipe makes, I'm guessing 3 dozen. Prep time does not include 2 hour chill time.

A waste of ingredients. Even after refrigerating the dough crumbled and was difficult to transfer to the pan. It took longer than the alloted 5-8 minutes cooking adn after they were done they had no taste,did taste like vegetable oil Yuck!
