Holiday Sugar Cookies

Comment on this recipe

I have baked these cookies for 39 years. I got the recipe out of a bag of Gold Medal flour and the recipe is by Betty Crocker. I think the dough is sweet and kids like to eat it before it is baked. I have taken them to work on all holidays and it tastes like best bakery cookies. Very good and fun to make.

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 cup margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Frosting:
1 egg white
Powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring

Instructions

Cream sugar and margarine together. Mix in egg and almond flavoring. Stir dry ingredients together and blend into sugar and margarine mixture. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Using half of the dough at a time, roll out on floured table. Cut with cookie cutters. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet, 7 to 8 minutes until light brown. To make frosting, beat 1 egg white until frothy then add 1 cup at at time of powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon or less of almond flavoring. Then add more powdered sugar until right consistency, slightly runny. Add food coloring to decorate.
