Lee's Note: "The only sugar cookies I make - and always for Christmas. Dough handles beautifully and can be rolled very thin. Keeps well in the refrigerator. We prefer sugar instead of icing for decorations. These are fragile, light, crispy, melt-in-your-mouth fantastic! (I don't remember where I got this recipe)"
