A yearly tradition in our family each Christmas is to get together and make gingerbread houses and sugar cookies. I have a very artistic daughter, creative daughter-in-law and two fun grandchildren who come to my kitchen to have a day of fun. My job is to make the cookie dough and keep the frosting in supply. We make a mess, but this grandmother loves a messy kitchen when fun is involved! I am still cleaning up sprinkles from my kitchen floor three days later. I make the same cookie dough I have for years….I call this recipe “My Kid’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.” When I try to sneak in the store bought dough, when time is scarce, it is noticed.
