Christmas Cookies I

Margaret Wehling 0

"This is the cookie recipe my husband grew up on. His mother would make these every year for Christmas. These cookies freeze well and keep a long time. You will need somewhere between 16 and 20 cups of flour for this recipe, use as much flour as necessary to stiffen the dough."
