Notes
NOTES:
* Rolled cookies for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays - We almost never make these cookies except at the holidays. They just seem to be cookies suited to late Autumn and Winter. (We did make a batch of heart shaped ones last Valentine's day.) We usually make these cookies in holiday shapes and frost them with seasonal colors. This is a good recipe for kids to help out with.

* It helps to keep most of the dough in the refrigerator while you are cutting shapes. It cuts much better when it is cold.

* These are time-consuming and fairly difficult, but worth it.

Serve traditionally with a glass of milk to the kids, coffee or tea for the folks.
