This is my great-grandmother's recipe. It has survived four generations and is still at the top of my cut-out recipe list. The secret is to roll the dough extra thin!

My mother in law has a polish name for these but my husband and brothers always just called them "Polish Christmas Cookies". They are very easy to make and have a nice anise flavor to them.

Dora's Christmas Cookies

Submitted by: Beverly Metzger 
This recipe has been in my family for over 50 years. As a child, I couldn't wait to go to my sister's house to bake these. We would bake all one day and decorate them all day the next. Fond memories. Cut down on the salt if using margarine.

Grandma Tibbitts Sugar Cookies

Submitted by: UPATNINE 
This recipe was handed down from my great grandmother. It took a few years to figure out the exact measures. These cookies are very soft and if you want to use a cutter, the dough should be refrigerated a couple hours. I use a three inch biscuit cutter. You can also drop these if you are short on time. Sprinkle tops with colored sugar or whatever decorative confection you like. These are good plain also.
