It's cookie time! The best time! And nothing quite says the holidays like a counter top full of flour + butter + cookie cutters and sprinkles. Today I'm sharing with you a yummy cookie recipe that comes from a friend of mine, her moms actually. I adopted it into our family and it's here to stay. It's the perfect cookie really. I am talking buttery deliciousness people. It is the perfect combination of sweet, with just a tiny hint of salty. It is basically heaven in one bite! This is also a great one to do with the kids. They will be very good at eating the dough and rolling them in sprinkles.
