Lynette's Best Sugar Cookies

Lynette's Best Sugar Cookies

Yields 3-4 dozen cookies
2 cups of sugar
6tsp of baking powder
2 cups of butter or margerine
7 cups of flour
6 eggs
4tsp. vanilla

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla, and dry ingredients; mix thoroughly. This dough makes super yummy sugar cookies. It can be rolled out immediately or refrigerated if desired. Roll the dough on a floured surface about 1/4" to 3/8" thick and cut with cookie cutters. Bake for 10 minutes on a greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees.

Butter Frosting (Ohhh So YUMMY!)

6tbsp. butter
4 1/2 to 4 3/4 cups sifted powder sugar
1/4 cup milk
2tsp almond extract ( you may decrease if it is too much for you)

In a BOSCH mixing bowl beat butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add about 1/2 powdered sugar, beat well. Beat in milk and almond extract. Gradually beat in the remaining powdered sugar, then additional milk, if neccessary, to make the frosting of spreading consistency.

This cookie and frosting recipe are yummy! I learned how to make them at the preparedness store free Saturday tutorial!
