Baking My Way: Old-fashioned Sugar Cookies

(The recipe doesn't call for icing but everything is better with it!)

These cookies are super tasty. They're nice and soft, super buttery and just so, well, like I said, tasty! A must in everybody's master cook book.

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Combine first four ingredients; mix well. Using a fork cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl beat eggs. Gradually add sugar, vanilla, and lemon extract to eggs. Beat until light. Add flour mixture. Stir by hand until dough forms.

Refrigerate for an hour

Preheat oven to 375. 

Roll out and cut into whatever shapes you want. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake for 6-11 minutes. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. 

The icing I used is:

  • Frosting
  • Recipe makes 3 cups
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temp
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract or clear vanilla extract
