My great grandmother made these every year for christmas, except she increased the butter to 3/4 cup of salted butter. She also mentions in her notes that it's best to avoid touching the dough with your hands as much as possible. She also just sifted the dry ingredients together and beat everything together with a wooden spoon.

These look incredible—high on my list (it just might have to wait until January, but that's okay!).

I hate baking cookies and I'm not a huge cookie eater. But these sound just right-easy and simple in taste. I love your cookie cutter (I'm so lazy --NOT A BAKER--, if I have to roll them I don't make them; I'll have to let you know how they come out with me just patting them into a random shape). Thanks! ~Teraisa

Anyone else loving that the Christmas cookies pictured in the photo are 6 pointed stars traditionally considered a Jewish symbol?! :-)

Haha let's just say there is nothing traditional about these cookies (or my holiday baking tools) :) -- also, I really shouldn't even call them Christmas cookies since I will be making them weekly all year round now I bet!
