How to prepare sugar cookies

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

With electric mixer, beat powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla, almond extract and egg in a large mixing bowl. Mix them on a medium speed or you can mix them with the spoon until well blended. Then add flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Stir them well.

Divide the dough into two parts and shape them into 2 discs. Wrap them in the plastic wrap. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Lightly flour the surface and roll each disc until ¼ inch thick. Cut with 2 to 2 ½ inch cookie cutter of your favorite shapes. Place them on cookie sheet with 2 inch spacing.

Bake cookies for 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from oven and let them cool slightly. Place cookies on cooling racks and let them cool completely.

Now prepare frosting. Beat powdered sugar, milk and vanilla with spoon until smooth. If the frosting is too stiff and not spreadable, add more milk 1 teaspoon at a time. Tint with food color of your choice.

Spread frosting on cookies. Sprinkle colored sugar or candy sprinkles if desired. Let them stand for 4 hours or until frosting is set.

You can store these sugar cookies in airtight jars with waxed paper between the layers.
