Frosted Sugar Cookies

 

Frosted Sugar Cookies

This is Mary Laumeyer-Wynn's recipe. She made these on Valentine's Day one year we were up there at the farm at about that time, and I remember having great fun helping her decorate them. I love this recipe, and it has been a family favorite for many years.
