Sugar Cookies & Frosting

December 28, 2014

Cookies by Adrienne and Frosting by Sarah 🙂

Cookies:
– 1 c salted butter, room temperature
– 2 c white sugar
– 2 eggs, well beaten
– 1 t cream of tartar (I didn’t have this so I used 3 t baking powder and no soda)
– 1 t baking soda
– 1 t vanilla
– 3 c flour, preferably bleached

If you have a hand mixer, make one batch at a time. Combine the butter and sugar until creamed with hand mixer. Add eggs. Add everything else. Then add a cup of flour at a time.

Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Rollout and cut shapes! Bake at 375 for 6-8 min on UNGREASED cookie sheets. DON’T LET THE COOKIES GET BROWN!

Frosting:
1 c UNSALTED butter, room temperature
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t almond extract
4 c powdered sugar
2 T milk

Mix the butter, vanilla and almond. Slowly add the powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency.

Makes enough to frost one cake or 2 dozen cookies
