Christmas sugar cookies

My mom got this great recipe years ago from a friend, so I thought I’d share how to make Christmas cutout cookies (or you can just make them round if you want). Note: I’m not sure how many cookies this is for.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Milk
  • Salt

Instructions:

  • Warm butter and mix well with sugar. Add egg, vanilla, almond, flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and mix together to make dough.
  • Refrigerate dough for 2-3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375. Divide dough in half and roll it out with flour. Use cookie cutters if desisred. Bake Cookies for 7-8 minutes.
  • To make the frosting add 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1 tsp almond, salt, and some milk and mix together in a bowl. Add food coloring if desired. Spread frosting over cookies once they have cooled. Add sprinkles if desired. Let frosting dry.
