Sugar cookie are a holiday staple, yet I had never made them. You see commercials of kids, moms and grandparents all in the kitchen decorating cookies for Santa. I just always put out Chips Ahoy or Oreos (that's what I heard he liked) but this year I decided to give homemade sugar cookies a whirl. They turned out pretty good, If I do say so myself. It was the icing that made them though, so here is the recipe I used. I found it in my moms recipe box.
