Deluxe Sugar Cookies
Butter or margarine
Cream of tartar
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, almond extract. Mix well.
Add flour, soda, and cream of tartar until smooth. Chill dough 2-3
hours. Roll out to about 1/4" thickness. Cut dough with cookie
cutters. Bake on greased cookie sheet 7-8 minutes at 375~. These
cookies are sweet and they really don't need any frosting, but they
should be sprinkled with colored sugar before baking. They are very
pretty at Christmas time. I make large stars and sprinkle half of one
star with green sugar and the other half with red sugar.
