Suzanne’s Sugar Cookies

Suzanne and I got the kids together and made these sugar cookies for Valentine’s Day.  This recipe made 84 small cookies.  She took half of them and shared them with family.  I kept the other half and sent them with my son to share with a group of his friends.  This is a great sugar cookie recipe to make even at Christmas time.
