Ingredients

  • Sugar Cookie:

  • 1 1/2

    cup sifted confectioners sugar

  • 1

    cup margarine (or butter)

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    tsp vanilla

  • 1/2

    tsp almond extract

  • 2 1/2

    cups flour

  • 1

    tsp baking soda

  • 1

    tsp cream of tartar

  • Icing (or you can use store bought vanilla icing):

  • 3/4

    stick of butter, microwave to get softer

  • Add 2 cups of confectioners sugar

  • 1

    tsp vanilla

  • A few glugs of milk

Directions

Cookies: Cream sugar and margarine (or butter). Mix in egg and flavoring. Into another bowl, mix dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredient mixture into the sugar and magazine (butter) and egg mixture. Form 2 big balls and flatten in between wax paper for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator. You can use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. This helps when you are using a cookie cutter for shapes. The dough is much easier to work with after being in the fridge. Heat oven at 350. For decoration, you can add sprinkles to the cookies before you bake them and they will bake into the cookies. If you want icing, wait for the cookies to cool after baking. Bake for 8-9 minutes. If you are making thinner cookies, check the cookies at 6 minutes. Frosting (use store bought icing for a quick alternative): Beat ingredients in a electric mixer. Change proportion of ingredients to get proper consistency.
