Aunt Peg’s Sugar Cookies Recipe

Aunt Peg’s Sugar Cookies

Back in the early 80’s, when I was meeting my husband’s family for the first time.  I had the BEST Sugar Cookies ever, they were made by my husband’s Aunt Peg.  She always made sure that whenever my husband came to visit (Christmas holiday) to have a BIG BAG of these cookies for her favorite nephew, Mike.  We had a 4 hour drive, so we went to Endicott, NY, about 2 times a year.
