“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.”
36 cookies
