Grandma Larsens Holiday Cookies

This is my Grandma Larsens top secret cookie recipe. She would make them every year when we would come visit for Christmas. They are traditionally made with red and green colored sugar but you can choose whatever colors you want to match the season.

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  1. Mix together shortening, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.

  3. Shape into two rolls. Roll rolls in colored sugar. Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 2 hours.
  4. Slice 1/4 inch think and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until they are done.
