sugarcookies2I got this recipe from “followtheruels”

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softenedsugarcookie1
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 330 degrees.
  2. Place the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. With the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  3. Mix in the egg, vanilla, and almond extracts until just combined.
  4. Mix in the flour 1 cup at a time until all flour is combined.
  5. Turn dough out on to a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap up and place in the fridge until ready to use. Dough can be rolled out right away if your in a pinch.
  6. Place a piece of parchment paper down on the counter top. Roll dough out on the parchment paper, using minimal flour to keep the rolling pin from sticking.
  7. Cut dough out to the desired shapes. Bake for 10-15 minutes until just barely brown around the edge.


If you don’t have powdered sugar, replace with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.
