Deluxe Sugar Cookies

Its Scrumptious Saturday! Today I bring you one of my favourite and fun to make desserts! Frost them or not, they’re delicious either way!

(I was gonna put a picture in here, but for some reason I can’t find it, sorry!)

1 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almond extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Mix powdered sugar, margarine, egg, vanilla, and almond extract.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.  Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Divide dough into halves.  Roll each half 3/16 inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered board.  Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until edges are light brown, 7 to 8 minutes.  Frost and decorate as desired.
