ROLL-OUT SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE

Makes approximately 3 dozen (3-inch) cookies

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric stand mixer, or hand mixer, until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract.

3.Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Once the dough mixes into a ball, you’re done mixing. Test that the dough is sticky and holds a shape, but doesn’t stick to your fingers. Do not chill dough.

4.Divide the dough into 2 balls, then form them into 2-inch thick rectangles discs. This will keep the dough from falling apart while rolling, and the rectangular shape will help you cut more cookies out of each rolling.

5.On a floured surface, roll each ball into a circle, approximately 12 inches in diameter, and 1/8 inch thick.

6.Dip the cookie cutter into flour before each use and cut out shapes from dough.

7.Bake the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet, with or without parchment paper. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Move the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
