Wow! What a wonderful collection. I think you are in the cookie spirit too! I will be trying all these when we thaw enough to have water to clean up after baking. Right now most of our dishes are out and in need of washing.

I am looking for an old, very old recipe for Sugar Cookies.
My grandmother used to make sugar cookies with butter she churned, eggs from her truly free range chickens and cream you had to cut from the settling pans. I am looking for a recipe that uses the heavy cream she used. Does anyone have such recipe?
These are to teach my grandchildren things my great grandmother taught me. Sort of family traditions for Christmas. I will create a modification that will better serve today's nutritional needs. thank you all
