Twelve Days of Christmas - Sugar Cookies



What's Christmas without Sugar Cookies. Aunt Thelma(Grandpa Earle's sister) was the Queen of Sugar Cookies in our family. Aunt Val has taken on that role...This is the recipe I have used for years to make tender, flavorful cookies for any holiday....

Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 C soft butter
1 egg
1/2 t almond flavoring
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 C flour
1 t baking powder
1 t cream of tartar

Cream butter and sugar; add egg and flavorings; stir flour, baking powder and cream of tartar together slightly and add. You can put the dough in a plastic bag and refrigerate for an hour, but I usually roll it right out. Bake at 375 for 10=12 minutes
