Sugar Cookie Recipe

Here is our families favorite sugar cookie recipe. It’s kind of a secret so shhhhhh – don’t tell =)
These cookies will literally melt in your mouth! They are delicious frosted or cookie a couple minutes longer and eaten plan with a slight crunchy.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Blend together:
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup softened butter (I use Target organic, salted butter)
  • 1/2 teas vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teas almond extract
  • 1 large egg
Next, stir in:
  • 1 teas baking soda
  • 1 teas cream of tartar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour. 
You will have a dry dough. You can refrigerate for 2 hours if you want easier to handle dough and have the time. If not they can be rolled out right away.

Dust your counter with powdered sugar or flour. Using hands squish dough together and then place on prepared counter. Using rolling pin to roll out cookies – keeping dough nice and thick (1/4” thick) for soft cookies. Cut out and place on cookie sheet or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes for soft cookies, 10-12 minutes for crunchier cookies. Do not remove from cookie sheet until set (they may not look done at 8 minutes, but they are!) After 5-6 minutes carefully remove and put on wire racks to cool.
