Crisp Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

2 C.

Butter, softened

2 C.

Granulated Sugar

1

Egg

1 tsp.

Almond or Vanilla Extract

4 1/2 C.

Flour

1 tsp.

Baking soda

Colored sugars and decorations

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
    In mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until combined.
    Add egg, vanilla (or Almond) extract and mix well.
    Sift together the flour and baking soda.
    Beat as much of the flour mixture into the butter mixture as you can. Fold in the rest by hand.
    On a lightly floured surface roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes.
    Line cookie sheet with the "The Miracle Baking Mat". Arrange cookies on mat, leaving space in between for the cookies to spread during baking.
    Sprinkle with sugar, colored sugars and holiday decorations.
    Bake for 10 minutes or until done but not brown.
    These cookies are great for busy cooks as the dough does not need to be refrigerated before rolling out.
