Rolled Sugar Cookies


It has been a 12 year quest to find the "perfect rolled sugar cookie" recipe. I finally found it and I want to share it with ya'll. It has replaced my sour cream sugar cookie recipe, simply because there is no shortening in it!! It was eh okay and they didnt come to life until you frosted them. However THESE melt in your mouth with out frosting. yummy.

1 1/2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
2 tsp baking powder
5 c. flour
1 tsp salt

Beat the sugar and butter till creamy, add 1 egg at a time while that is mixing then the flavorings and your dry ingredients. Scoop up all the dough and wrap in Saran wrap, chill for one hour or overnight. Roll out between a 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick ness, bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Cool on pan a bit, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely, I let mine stay out on the racks a few hours to get the bottoms dry, as these are moist.

I am a sucker for a handmade valentine!!
