The best Christmas cookies ever!

I want to share with you my favorite Christmas cookie recipe. These are super easy with very few ingredients and melt in your mouth. I even won a cookie contest with these! I learned to make them in my cooking class at Tomales high school with my favorite teacher Miss Issel. I wish I knew where she was and could thank her for teaching me to cook and sew.
