As the holiday decorations start appearing in our malls and the Christmas tunes start playing on the radio, it doesn’t take long to get caught up in the excitement of Christmas and the holiday season. One easy way to get your family in the spirit is to spend the day at home baking sugar cookies and drinking your favorite warm drink. Not only is this a great activity for kids and adults, it is also a fun project that leaves you with delicious results. So gather up the family, put on a movie and follow the recipe below to make your very own, and very easy, sugar cookies:
