The Best Sugar Cookie...Christmas Snowflakes!

Snowmen aren't forever, but
Christmas memories are!




"In the jolly winters of the long-ago, It was not so cold as now -Oh, oh no! Then, as I remember, snowballs to eat Were as good as apples now, and every bit as sweet!" ~by James Whitcomb Riley, 1883
