I used this recipe for Christmas cookies and am using it again for Easter. The basic recipe is very good (I've also made the Lemon Bars), and the accompanying frosting recipe sets up well, allowing the cookies to be stored without sticking to each other. I will be using this recipe many, many more times as I expand my cookie cutter collection!
