We were craving sugar cookies at our house this week!
Since we didn't love any of the recipes we had, we went in search of a new one.
This recipe is from Nat Notes
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
6 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. almond extract
7 cups flour
LOVE – lots & lots of love
Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs, baking powder, vanilla and almond extracts. Add flour. Roll dough @ 1/3” think – bake at 375 degrees for 6-7 minutes. Add the LOVE from start to finish… :-)
I will add 1 cube butter and 2-3 tbs of vanilla and almond extract per bag of powder sugar. Add milk as you go. I love frosting and like to put lots on my cookies. I will usually use 2-3 bags of powdered sugar and I use a frosting bag to frost. :-)
I am sure hers turn out prettier than mine did - but they still tasted great!
A few side notes: (to help me remember next time I make them)
*Half the recipe!
(Unless you want enough to have a plate of cookies for each neighbor...)
Here is how many cookies we got...
*Bake until white.
(I am one who looks for browned edges, but the edges on these never got brown.
They are perfectly baked when they are completely white - not the darker dough color.)
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
