The Best Holiday Sugar Cookie Recipe

Around this time of year, it’s hard not to think about my mom’s holiday baking. Each December, she bakes at least a dozen different kinds of cookies and sweet treats from chocolate peanut butter bars to classic shortbread cookies. As long as I’ve known, it’s been a holiday tradition.

She then shares them with family, friends, doctors, mail people, etc. and I think many of them would agree with me on this next statement. Her sugar cookies are the absolute BEST. Today, I’m sharing the recipe in hopes you’ll make and also enjoy these delicious (and pretty) delights!
