If you are looking for a good sugar cookie recipe Grandma Green’s Sugar Cookies are for you! This is my paternal Grandma’s recipe that has been passed down for generations. We make them every year during the holiday season, sometimes more than once. You can make them different shapes and use them for any holiday but we LOVE them at Christmas. You can use any icing but we love the simple powdered sugar and water mixture. It is super sweet and delicious. Give them a they and let us know what you think or share your own family recipe with us on our social media.
