The best part about these cookies is making them with your family! All of the kiddos love getting to use the cookie cutters to turn rolled out dough into magical Christmas trees and snowflakes. Letting them ice their own cookies can turn into a mess but the look of joy on their faces makes the extra clean up time rewarding.
