This is my recipe for sugar cookies. I have had this recipe for.... I can't remember how long and these have always been a big hit at Christmas time. I think what makes them so soft is that you use powdered sugar for them. So here is the recipe..........
1 ½ CUPS OF SIFTED POWDERED SUGAR
1 CUP BUTTER OR MARGERINE (TUB STYLE)
ADD & BLEND IN:
1 TSP VANILLA
½ TSP ALMOND EXTRACT
2 ½ CUPS OF FLOUR
1 TSP CREAM OF TARTER
1 TSP BAKING SODA
REFRIGERATE AT LEAST 2 HOURS. HEAT OVEN TO 375 DEGREES. DIVIDE DOUGH IN HALF-ROLL AND PUNCH OUT COOKIE SHAPES. BAKE APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES.
Frost with your choice of frosting. I use powder sugar frosting. And then...walla....you have sugar cookies! :)
Enjoy the Christmas season and have fun baking!
