My friend recently opened up her own hair salon and had a 1 year party for all of her clients. I brought these cookies to help her celebrate. This sugar cookie recipe is the same one that my mom used to make when I was little. This is Betty Crocker’s recipe. It’s so good that it hasn’t changed for over 50 years.
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Butter, softened
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
(sprinkles or sugar decorations to top the cookies)
1. Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla extract, almond extract and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Form multiple patties and wrap in saran wrap or wax paper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
2. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
3. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness on lightly floured surface.
Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet.
4. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
