Personal Notes:
These are the best sugar cookies for cutting out and decorating. They hold their shapes great and taste good to boot. I have made these cookies since Rita was 5 years old and shared decorating them with: Patty ( who made angels in every color ), Rita, Andy, Mom, Diane, Spike, Laura, Joe, Ann, Brian, old neighbors from 5th Ave. north, Lisa, Bobby and Christoph and Lombardo cousins. And of course, Gracie, Lexi, Bruce, and in years to come, Matthew, Luke and Jack.
