One of my favorite Christmas traditions is baking and decorating sugar cookies. Every year my mom and I would make the cookie dough, roll it out, and then choose from a myriad of festive Christmas shapes to cut our cookies out with. My favorite were always the snowman and the candy canes! Then I would wait
patiently somewhat patiently for them to bake while we prepared the icing. Decorating them with frosting, sprinkles, chocolate chips, candies, etc. was always my favorite part!
One year when we were teenagers my brother decided to help my mom and I with the decorating. After a while we noticed that he was not producing as many finished cookies as my mom and I were. I remember looking over as he stuffed a freshly-decorated cookie into his mouth. No wonder his cookies were not making it to the plate :) Suffice it to say our cookie production was slightly less numerous that year!
Here is a delicious recipe I found on Pinterest - these cookies are famous for being "no spread" so you won't have the blobby snowman or misshapen angels anymore.
