Do you remember smelling fresh baked cookies when you came home from school? Do you remember helping your Mom bake and decorate the cookies, especially at Christmas time. If the answer is yes read on.
Baking cookies are definitely a good way to help your children become involved in the holiday planning and make a great gift.
This was my Grandmothers recipe for cut out cookies for all occasions. They can be frosted or decorated any way you wish.
When I was growing up we always could not wait for these mouth watering cookies. Today the cut out cookies taste completely different from this great recipe. I did not want it to be lost so I am posting it today.
I am very proud to share this recipe with you I think it would make my Grandmother happy. Try it and see what you think. Let me know if you like them.
½ Cup butter
½ cup sugar
½ Cup brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 ½ tsp water
½ tsp soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp vanilla
