Grandma’s Christmas Sugar Cookies

I’ve tried many sugar cookie recipes over the years but I always come back to this family favorite. It is a SUGAR cookie recipe so before you get all judgy about the nutritional profile just recognize that it’s not a health food, it’s a sugar cookie. The quality of the ingredients is where I try to keep the damage to a minimum and I always feel confident that they are a better choice than a bag of dough or box off the shelf because I know every single ingredient going in.

Turkey Brine

The inaugural Grandma’s Kitchen recipe has to be the secret to a perfectly moist and beyond flavorful Thanksgiving turkey. I’ve included the recipe and all of the tips and tricks that you can only get from Grandma’s Kitchen. Plan ahead to allow for a good 24-hour soak to infuse all of this goodness into the bird and make the centerpiece of the traditional dinner a snap.
