Sugar Cookies

This is an awesome sugar cookie I must say. I made this recipe for Family Home Evening treats. Needless to say they didn't last long. I adapted it from I am Baker

1 1/2 cups butter softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons almond extract(optional)
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

  1. In a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until well combined.
  2. Add in the 3 eggs extracts, and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly one cup at a time add to the butter mixture. Don't over mix or dough will be tough.
  4. Put dough in a  Ziploc bag and refrigerate at least 1 hour. 
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  6. Roll dough out a lightly floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out with a cookie cutter of your choice. 
  7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool.
  8. Frost with your favorite butter cream frosting. This recipe is my favorite. You can also color the frosting with food coloring of your choice. We chose yellow.
  9. And of course what sugar cookie is complete without sprinkles. yummy.
