Nancy's Kitchen - Tried and Tested Recipes
Deluxe Sugar Cookies

This is another tried 'n' true recipe from a Taste Of Home magazine 17
years ago.

Deluxe Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar

Beat together in electric mixer bowl, the butter, sugar, egg and extracts. Add half the flour and mix in on low. Add remaining flour, soda and cream of tartar and beat on low just till blended into a smooth dough. Roll out a quarter of the dough at a time on a floured surface (they say to use powdered sugar instead of flour, but I never have).

Roll to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes with cutters. (re-roll the scraps of dough, till all is used up). Place on ungreased sheets. Bake at 350º until edges begin to brown, about 8 minutes, or so. Can sprinkle with colored sugar before baking, but I like also to frost them with a vanilla butter icing, tinted with different colors and put the colored "sprinkles" on the frosting before it dries. These store
well. Makes about 3-1/2 dozen.
