Baking Sugar Cookies for Christmas

Baking sugar cookies with my mom is a holiday tradition in my family. This year, as my daughter approaches her first birthday, I have passed the tradition on to her. This past weekend, my mom came over to help me and my daughter bake sugar cookies. My husband even helped out a bit!

For my full recipe for beautifully decorated colorful sugar cookies, check out my Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe.
