There's nothing like soft sugar cookies at Christmas. I make these each year and I remember making them with my mom when I was little. This recipe is from a 1990 special heritage holiday edition of Betty Crocker. Try frosting these with Easy Creamy Decorating Frosting which I also have the recipe for. Or just put sprinkles on them before baking. Time does not include time it takes to roll out and cut cookies. This makes anywhere from 5 dozen to 7 dozen cookies depending on how thin you roll it and how many times you re-roll it.
