There’s Still Time For Sugar Cookies

 

So here’s my favorite recipe for sugar cookies. I made a batch for myself this weekend. After making “Jonah fish” for the Sunday school kids, I asked my co-teacher for the recipe for what I had deamed “the yummiest cooies in the world.” So now I share it with you. Eat it.

Cookies:
1 1/2 cups powdered shugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Mix flour, baking soda and cream of tartar in a small mixing bow. Cream sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract together. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Divide dough into two balls; refigerate at least 2-3 hours. Roll out dough and cut in desired shapes. Bake at 375 F for 7-8 minutes.

Frosting:
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c butter

Beat all ingreadients (add a couple drops of water to thin). Divide and color with food coloring.
