Recipe Ingredients for Simple Cut-Out Cookies


For Cookies:
2 c butter, softened
1 1/3 c sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp salt
5 c flour, sifted

For Frosting:
2 1/4 c powdered sugar
3 tbs butter
3 tbs skim milk
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
3/4 tsp lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Simple Cut-Out Cookies

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Add almond extract. Sift together salt and flour, and add to butter mixture. Chill for 3-4 hours or overnight.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough (not too thin...about to 1/8 in.) and cut out shapes. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on pan for a couple of minutes, then move to rack to cool completely. Frost and decorate.

  3. The recipe above is a double recipe, but since I only do cut out cookies for special occasions that involve a lot of people, I have always made the double recipe. The frosting recipe is tripled.
