Cyndi's Note: When rolling the cookie dough out place the unused dough back into the refrigerator There will be times when the dough gets to soft from the warmth of your hands just switch the refrigerated dough for the warm dough. These are the best holiday cookies but can be used for any occasion. For me they taste like Christmas
