SugarCookies

Sugar Cookies

My children (and now grandchildren) enjoy cutting these out and decorating them. From the time they were little, we would take a day to make these special cookies. We would use everything from colored sugars and sprinkles to forming different decorations out of Starburst candies. – Valerie Cheatham, Assistant Editor, Illinois Country Living
