Shaping Up for the holidays

I found this cool holly leaf cookie cutter last week at the antique mall.  I've been collecting vintage cookie cutters for a couple years now.  Now if I could only find where I put them all!  One of my favorite holiday memories is enjoying the cookies my Grandmother Lyons made for us when we visited.  She did a cookie exchange with her friends (yes, even back in the 50's & 60's they had cookie exchanges!) and then stored tins of cookies in the freezer in her basement.  I always volunteered to go down and get another tin when needed-that way I got to pick my favorites! I have some of her handwritten cookie recipes and will treasure them always.
