Aunt Sally Cookies

Source: Reader's family recipe

Notes: You can add plenty of flour while rolling out the dough, and make sure you don't overbake. The cookies will still be soft when you take them out of the oven!

About our virtual Christmas cookie exchange

This month, in our daily email and here on our website, we’ve been sharing our favorite Christmas cookie recipes. We're so grateful to everyone who has submitted a recipe!

Of course, the magic doesn’t have to stop when Christmas is over. Subscribers to Verily Table, our weekly meal-planning newsletter, get five tried-and-true recipes in their inboxes every week from us, the Verily editors, as well as from other Verily Table subscribers. These are the very same recipes we cook for our families and friends in our own homes. In other words, Verily Table is more than a helpful tool; it’s a community.

Subscriptions are $5/month or $60/year (the latter includes our other Verily Yours newsletters, Verily Work, Verily Home, and Verily Cents, as well as access to our members-only website). To learn more about it or to start your free trial, click here.
