I’ve been told I have an old soul.  I love all things vintage and old-fashioned, whether it’s clothing, ideals, or recipes.

Grandma Charlotte's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe by coconutheadsurvivalguide.com My Grandma Charlotte passed at Christmas time when I was a baby. It was hard on my Mom, but we made her sugar cookies every year to honor her memory. This is the REAL DEAL. It's not some fancy schmancy dough in a bag that is artificially made to create the most perfect Martha-Stewart-Pin-Worthy cookies. It's old-timey dough and an old-timey recipe.

My Mom and I would listen to “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and dance in the kitchen as we made cookies.   Even to this day, I still make them with the vintage cookie cutters.

I will warn you, it’s a cantankerous dough so you may have to talk to it, beg, curse at it or encourage it to behave.  It’s also an overnight dough, so you have to actually plan to make the cookies.  You can’t just have a free afternoon and say oh let’s make cookies.  When I was a kid, I often got to invite a friend over to help me decorate the cookies.

We have passed down the tradition and Stepson often helps to make and decorate the cookies.  I always love the carnage.  After I took the “pretty” pictures for the blog, I let the boys use all of our seasonal sprinkles.  The fun began!

These cookies take some effort, but are totally worth it.  Wouldn’t these cookies be great to serve on this adorable Mrs. Claus Cookie Co tray with a glass of milk and a seasonal straw?
