Yummy Sugar Cookies

Comment on this recipe

Here is a Yummy Sugar Cookie recipe that belongs to my late mother. Whenever my 7-year old granddaughter comes over to spend the night, she always wants to make these sugar cookies. She likes to cut them out with cookie cutters and decorate them with sugar sprinkles. I have a lot of cookie cutters and she likes to use every cookie cutter I have. I enjoy spending time with my granddaughter making these cookies. My granddaughter and I flatten the cookie dough out with our hands and then we cut them out with any kind of cookie cutters. The almond extract gives it a really good flavor.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt

Instructions

Cream butter, sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Beat the vanilla and almond extract. Sift dry ingredients. Stir the dry ingredients together. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of a glass. Bake at 300 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
