Sugar Cookies

I have had this recipe for 16 years. It is written on a post-it note stuck over the original sugar cookie recipe in my cook book. It is such a great recipe that it trumps all other sugar cookie recipes. I am making this for the kids in my Primary on Sunday for those who have completed their scripture reading logs. They will be decorated beautifully. I will post pictures as soon as I have the finished product. But for now, here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy.

1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
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 tarter

mix. chill for a few hours. cut out into shapes. bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Really watch the time or you will have hard, crunchy cookies.
