Butter Cookies: A Christmas Tradition

Leave a comment

I am not sure how far back this butter cookie recipe goes, but I know it is more than 60 years that my family was baking them for Christmas.  I took over the tradition more than 25 years ago from my mother, and as soon as my children were old enough, they looked forward to helping, signaling the beginning of the holiday season for them.  We now have three cookie presses, but I still have the original one that I started with, and a manual one from my grandmother.

Merry Christmas, Mom.
