Rolled Sugar Cookies for Christmas Gifts!

Here's the cookies my kids and I made prior to my Packaging with Appeal Class.  They are Alton Brown's recipe for Rolled Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing.



Three cookies fit perfectly into each of the bags and boxes we made.  These cookies are REALLY yummy.  I gave them out to my son's bus driver and the mailman.  Enjoy!
