Sparkle Cut-Out Cookies

These cream cheese cookies were a tradition in my house growing up. Every Christmas we would enjoy making and decorating these as a family. My parents would help us cut them out. The kids would each decorate together carefully picking out the red and white jimmies for candy canes, decorating snowmen etc. Now I enjoy it with my own kids. I have to say though- they have yet to master the art of decorating like my brothers and I did. :-)
