I have to share the cookie recipe we made yesterday from the Wilton cookie cutter box. For the longest time Jon and I have been looking for a good sugar cookie recipe but always end up with the "old fashion" sugar cookies which aren't the same. This one is a cross b/w short bread and sugar cookie and are soooo good. Beware b/c they are addicting! You know how I knew they would be good....the dough was delish!!! I love me some cookie dough!!!!
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract (I used the regular dark one and it was fine)
1/2 teaspoon no-color almond extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400 F. In mixing bowl, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Mix flour, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Do not chill dough. Divide dough into 2 balls. On a floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approx 12 in. wide and 1/8 in. thick. Dip cookie cutter in flour before each use. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 6-7 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen cookies. Recipe may be doubled.
