6" by 6" recipe page Christmas Cookies

I've been busy doing some Christmas baking. I made these yesterday and put most of them in the freezer or Brent and I will eat them all! I make roll outs for every holiday { Easter, Halloween,Valentines Day}and this is my favorite recipe for them. The picture is just of snowflakes but I also made the usual trees, stars, etc. I have been making them since I was a little girl with my mom, and then I made them with my kids. I'm off to do some more baking, have a happy Sunday!
