This cookie recipe is great for any holiday, especially Christmas! The almond flavor makes it better than any other sugar cookie recipe!
This is my absolute favorite sugar cookie recipe!
Our family first started using this recipe when my sister, Shannon was pregnant with my nephew, which is almost 17 years ago!
The recipe was found in a Taste of Home magazine and it was titled "Baby Shower Sugar Cookies". How perfect for a new baby on the way. We made them for her baby shower and they were a hit!
Ever since then, I've made them quite regularly for Christmas cookies, or just because I love them.
The almond flavoring is delicious and they turn out great every time!
Well, except once when my sister Shantel and I used the wrong ingredient. Baking powder, cream of tartar, salt and baking soda should never mistaken for one another. Disastrous! :)
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have over the years!!
The Best Frosted Sugar Cookies Recipe
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, beat well. Beat in extracts. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Gradually add to the wet mixture. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, set on parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand leaving 1-2 inches between each cookie. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
Cool and decorate with frosting and sprinkles.
