One of my best friends mother gave me this recipe and I have given it to many people, I am sharing it here with you all.    cookies


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar  (must use this!)

1 cup butter ..(I use blue bonnet sticks)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Cream Wet, Mix Dry, Blend together by hand.

Chill the dough ..(very important if it is too sticky it will not roll out.) Should hold together like pie dough in a ball before you chill it.. if it is too sticky use a little more flour. Can store this in plastic wrap in the fridge over a few days if needed.
Roll to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick & use cookie cutters, place cookies on a floured cookie sheet, and bake…(The thicker the dough before cutting the softer the cookie will be.)

375 degree oven, 7-8 min (or till done They don’t turn too brown, the browner they are the crispier they will be. Icing them will make them softer the next day.

I use a simple powered sugar, milk,vanilla,and teaspoon of butter icing on them.

This recipe I use all year around.

  1. A good sugar cookie recipe is priceless—don’t know if I’m ready to share mine, though, as it is SO much better than the standard one. My family would revolt if I tried to make plain sugar cookies again…
