Steve has been requesting Christmas cut-out cookies for weeks now and I finally agreed. They are so time consuming but my all time favorite cookie. I use my Nana’s recipe which is by far my favorite (recipe follows). As always they turned out wonderfully and I froze half for next time. I can eat these cookies like chips! Enjoy!!!
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
Blend & Stir In
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
Refrigerate dough for 2-3 hours. Roll out half at a time. Cut and bake at 375 for 7 minutes.
For the frosting, I just mixed powdered sugar with a little butter, milk and vanilla.
