    If you are an adult and live in reality, you understand these are cut out cookies, for anytime, calling them Christmas hurts no one. If you try not to eat cookies, don't even click on the recipe . Don't pretend you won't ever eat cookies again, either..... - 12/17/16

  • This recipe is great for special holidays, etc., not for a regular treat. I made them for friends and family but avoided them myself. Everyone said they were delicious! I switched he sugar to Splenda to save a few calories. - 12/17/16

    Would be nice to relabel this, as many people don't observe "Christ"mas (saturnalia). This is a good basic sugar cookie recipe to use with other cookie cutter shapes - Thanksgiving, Star Wars, geometric shapes, numbers, Channukah, etc. - even custom business logo shapes & colored designs. - 12/23/15
