Yummy Sugar Cookies

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 eggs
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… 🙂

Powdered sugar
Vanilla extract
Almond extract

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…
Another note:
*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!
