Grandma Laymon's Sugar Cookies

These cookies definitely bring back childhood memories for me!! My Grandma Laymon would call the birthday kid and ask what kind of cookies they wanted for their birthday. We got to pick like 3 or 4 different kinds of cookies. It was really awesome! I always chose the sugar cookies. They are so yummy!!

Almond Sugar Cookies


1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract (if you don't have this, just add one more tsp of vanilla)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter and sugar until well blended. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix all together. Slowly stir in flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda.

If your dough seems really sticky (which mine did), put in the freezer for about 30 minutes to one hour to harden. Roll in small balls and roll in sugar. My daughter and I added pink sprinkles to our sugar, and the cookies had some pink added to them. Put on baking sheet and bake about 10 mintues or golden. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
