There is nothing like homemade sugar cookies to bring a smile to someone’s face and who doesn’t want to spread some holiday cheer?  These cookies are great plain, topped with sugar decorations, but you can also make a light icing with 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk. Mix together and spread over cookies. Let dry completely.

It is one of our favorite Christmas sugar cookie recipes!
