When I was a child, Christmas wasn't complete without my mom's sugar cookies. As kids, my sister and I were always allowed to help with cutting them out and applying the sugar. I always insisted Santa had be colored with red sugar and the Christmas trees with green.
We used a silver set similar to this one I found at a garage sale for $1.
This set is made by Mirro Aluminum Company and was a premium from General Foods in 1975. It was still in the original mailing box.
