  • 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
