This sugar cookie recipe is an old family recipe.  If you’re a dough eater like me, then you’ll really enjoy this one!  These cookies are delicious without icing!!!  So sweet!

I never had the pleasure of baking anything with my great grandmother, but her recipes have been handed down and they’re simple and good!  I spent much of my childhood riding my bike to her home and playing games, embroidering, or climbing trees there.  She shared with me her love of art and photography.  I loved listening to her stories, but why did we never bake together?  I haven’t a clue, but it feels like I’m getting to know her again… and it’s nostalgic.
