sugar cookies

I love these sugar cookies. They might or might not make angels weep with happiness. (It's the almond extract.) Mmmm!

Tammy's Sugar Cookies

½ c butter
½ c shortening
1 c powdered sugar
½ c baker’s sugar or regular sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp almond extract

Cream butter, shortening, and sugars together until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract, mix until just blended.

Mix together:
3 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Add to wet mixture and mix until smooth. Chill. Roll to about ¼” thick and cut out shapes, or roll into 1.5" balls and flatten slightly. Bake at 350ยบ for 9 minutes (less time for smaller/thinner cookies).

P.S. They are not going to look done after 9 minutes, and you can bake them for a bit longer, but by the time they look done, they'll be too done. At least in my book.
