Sugar Cookies

cookie pictures provided by Fahrenheit 350

Sugar Cookie Recipe:

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Cream together powered sugar, butter, egg and vanilla. Add flour, tartar and soda mix thoroughly.

Wrap dough in cellophane and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. This will make it easy to roll and cut the dough.

Roll the dough out on a flour surface, about 1/4 inch thick. I like my sugar cookies thick! Use your favorite heart shaped cookie cutter, keep rolling and cutting until all the dough is gone. Cook at 375 degrees for 8 minutes - the cookies should just barely be browning on the sides. You will be sad if they over cook!

After the cookies have completely cooled: frost and decorate.

My little Sis, Kitty, decorated these cookies on her blog. thanks for the pics!
