My favorite all time Christmas cookies were my Aunt Etta's sugar cookies. Now you have to understand that my Aunt was an extremely compulsive lady, to understand the effort that went in to her cookie baking. Anyway she made the world's best sugar cookies, by the time Christmas came she would have several large UTZ chip cans full of cookies. Now this may not sound like such a feat to some, but one thing I didn't mention was that her cookies were almost thin enough to read the paper through. Trust me, I'm not exagerating here! After I began doing my own baking, I asked her how she got them soooo thin, how did she roll it out, then cut it & then, most important of all, get it on the cookie sheet without tearing it apart??!!
She told me it was really quite simple, she rolled each cookie out seperately on the cookie sheet, cut the dough & removed the excess. As my mind filled with the memories of those cans of cookies over the years, I just reeled at the thought of her endurance!!
