I never seem to get these to come out just like mom’s cookies, and I don’t know why. But, again, to be sure I don’t lose the recipe, I wanted to get it down so am posting it on the blog.
1 and ½ cup confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp almond flavoring
2 and ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
Mix sugar and butter. Add eggs and flavorings and mix well. Measure the flour by sifting or using the dip method. Stir in dry ingredients. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Scoop out a handful of dough and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters and then bake 7 to 8 minutes or until light brown.
