Danielle's Damn Good Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup of butter (aka 2 sticks)
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Mix sugar, butter, vanilla, almond, and egg in bowl...stir in remaining ingrediants slowly...cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours...
Preheat oven to 375...roll out the dough, cut as desired, decorate with sugar/sprinkes or whatever if you want to pre decorate...then throw them on a non-stick or greased cookie sheet for about 7-8 min...(and they're wonderful if you make them a little thick and keep them a bit soft...)
if you use self rising flour...don't put in the baking soda or cream of tartar...
Amazing Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package of cream cheese (8 oz.) SOFTENED
1 tablespoon of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
4 cups of powdered sugar (a pound usually is equal...so you could also use just a 1 pound bag/box)
beat the cream cheese, milk and vanilla in a bowl..then start adding in the cream cheese a bit at a time...it'll frost a reg. cake or 2 layers of a 9 inch cake...
