Grandma's Sugar Cookies

My Grandma gave me this recipe, which my mom used and now I use. I love these cookies. Cut out cookies are a bit time consuming, but these are worth it. My daughter (3 years old) likes to help, but then it takes even longer! Great for holidays so that you can get cookie cutters to match the holiday. Also great for children's birthday parties. These freeze very well. Oh no...I'm pregnant and now I have a craving for these!

1 ½ c sifted confectioner’s sugar
1 c butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond flavouring
2 ½ c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Cream butter and sugar.

Add egg, vanilla and almond flavouring; mix well.

Mix dry ingredients in a different bowl.

Add dry ingredients to liquid mixture; blend until smooth.

Roll dough 3/16th inch on lightly floured surface.

Cut with cookie cutter; sprinkle lightly with white sugar.

Place on lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes. (Do not overbake – cookies will still be quite light coloured).

Great with sprinkles or icing on top.
