I received this recipe from a woman who is like a grandmother to me. This is a great recipe for simple sugar cookies. However, this recipe is not meant for Christmas cut out cookies, the dough is not thick enough. It is important how you grease the cookie sheets. Too little, and they won't spread. Too much, and they will spread all over the place. I usually use about a tablespoon or so of Crisco to grease them. I love these cookies because they taste like they came from a bakery!
