I never had the chance to post this recipe at Christmas time but it is worth posting now. My mother-in-law makes these every year with the kids. They are the best sugar cookies I have had!
I figure they are good anytime of year so try them out. Enjoy!
Nana’s Sugar Cookies
1 cup Butter (at room temperature)
1 1/4 cup of Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Almond Extract
3 1/2 cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
Beat butter until creamy. Beat in sugar, eggs, vanilla & almond extract. Stir together flour, baking powder & salt. Add to butter mixture and beat well. Cover and chill for 1 hour or just start rolling out cookie dough as it usually is just fine to do so. Roll out and cut into shapes of choice! Bake in 400 degree oven for 6 to 8 minutes or lightly brown (around the edges of the cookies).
