I love Christmas cookies!!
I collect cookie cutters so that would make sense!
Every year I make some with family or friends.
I have a few tips and an amazing recipe to help you with your cookie making.
Cut Out Sugar Cookie Recipe:
1 c. shortening
1/2 c. butter or margarine (1 stick)
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
5 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
Chill dough for one hour.
Cook At 400 for 6-8 minutes.
Now for the tips...
Tip #1- Don't make your dough too thin or too thick when you roll it out.
Tip #2- I roll my dough out on parchment paper. Cut out my cookies and peel off the extra dough... NO more slanted gingerbread men from moving them from table to pan!

I either do decorating icing to decorate them and leave them to set overnight or I do sprinkles before I bake the cookies. Whatever suits you and yours.
Hope you enjoy your cookie making season!
