Easy Cookies to Make



The one thing that stands out in my mind is to have a pastry fluted edge cookie cutter.


These cookies are so much prettier with that tool and I still have mom's, it's over 100 years old.


You can get the pastry cookie round cutter at any cake decorating store online.


Just a word of caution, these cookies are addicting and you may have to make a double batch.
