Sugar Cookies

I use the recipe from Betty Crocker.


1 1/2  cups powdered sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll each half 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes with 2- to 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
