Christmas Cookies Blog Hop

Day 1 of 25 Days of Christmas
 My Favorite Christmas Cookie Recipe

I make many different kinds of Christmas cookies and love them all.  But my favorite recipe is for the rolled out sugar cookies.  This recipe I have used the past ten years or so comes from my daughter Kelly. She came home with this recipe when she was in high school, it is from her home economics class.  That was quite a few years ago, but this recipe is a good one and I will be sticking with it for years to come.  I double  or triple the following recipe.

Kelly's Rolled Sugar Cookies

400 degree oven

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 1/2  Tablespoons milk
1 egg

Combine first 5 ingredients, stir in remaining ingredients. Chill dough for easier handling. Roll dough 1/2 at a time, on floured board to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 5-8 minutes, till edges are brown. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

1 3/4 -2 cups powdered sugar
