When I was in nursing school at CSU, now UCO, in Edmond, OK, I shared a nursing class with another young mom, Donna. We quickly became friends and study partners as our toddlers were the same age and we both worked full time at Children's Hospital. Being a student and a young mom was difficult, but my friendship with Donna made it all the easier since we could both relate to each other's journey. We helped each other out during this time in our lives.
In 1982, Donna brought me a tray of homemade Christmas sugar cookies. The cookies were festively decorated and looked too good to eat. Taking the first sweet bite made my taste buds jump for joy! Not only were the cookies cute they were light and creamy. These cookies were the best cookies I had ever eaten! I will never forget how precious this gift was to me.
Knowing all that Donna and I went through together as young struggling moms, going to school and working full time, she still found the time to make these precious cookies for me.
This recipe has been my go-to recipe for easy, delicious cookies. And now I get to share the recipe that my family has cherished for years with my Leachco family. I hope these cookies bring cheer and memories to your holiday season!
For the sugar cookies:
For the icing:
Yields about 25 cookies (depending on the shape of cookies)
