My Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

After trying several sugar cookie recipes, these are always a crowd pleaser. They keep true to whatever shape you cut from the dough and are extremely yummy!

Preheat oven to 400°

Ingredients

1 1/2 c. (3 sticks) butter

1 c. sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp almond extract

3 c. flour

2 tsp. baking powder

Directions

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and extracts (if you don't have almond extract, substitute with 1/2 tsp vanilla). Combine flour and baking powder. Add 1-2 tsp water if dough is too stiff. Do not chill dough.

On a floured surface, roll out and cut 1/4" thick cookies.

Bake 7-8 minutes.

Cool completely before decorating.
