Cookies For Santa

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is probably baking cookies. The whole house smells delicious for days and sharing the cookies is just an added bonus! Today, we have a sugar cookie recipe that was shared with us by one of our SHE Team members. I think you will enjoy it.

Yield 2 dozen

1 ½ c. powdered sugar
2 ½ c. flour
1 c. butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 egg
1 tsp. cream of tarter

together better

2. Cream powdered sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla.

You can find this and other great family recipes in Lizzie's cookbook.
