Grammy Peg'S Christmas Cookies Recipe @pinch

Any adventurous baker will love to try this old-fashioned Christmas sugar cookie recipe. One of the ingredients is Baker's Ammonia (often known as ammonium carbonate) which is a leavening agent. The ammonia evaporates as it cookies to create little air pockets in the cookies. When baked, these cookies hold their shape very well. Have fun decorating and making them festive. The sugar cookie recipe makes a ton, so they're perfect for gift-giving. Store the baked cookies in an air-tight container, and they'll last a while. As a child, receiving these cookies from my Grammy Peg was a huge part of our Christmas tradition. Now, my mom, sisters, sister-in-law, nieces, and daughter-in-law all get together and make these delicious cookies every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This recipe makes a lot of cookies, approximately 400 2" cookies. Stored in an air-tight container they will last for months and months. I hope you enjoy them too!!
