Christmas Cookies

Source & History

This is the Sugar Cookie recipe from the Five Roses Cookbook. The Five Roses Cookbook was published by the Five Roses Flour company in Canada and, when I was growing up, was THE cookbook to give beginners. My copy is much worse for wear but I believe that it is no longer published and is, therefore, irreplaceable.

Some years ago we started making these as Christmas cookies, cutting them into Christmas shapes and decorating with coloured sugar. They were more popular at our house than the richer, fancier Christmas treats.
