Personal Notes:
*BLUE BOOK RECIPE This was Great Grandma Griffin's recipe and makes quite a few cookies. It is my favorite sugar cookie recipe for the holidays. I love to decorate them! They will rise a bit so I roll them out a little thinner than 1/2 inch. I also use this recipe for the crust of my fruit pizza.
