So.. I have been craving my grandma's sugar cookies for about a month now.
So, tonight, I finally made them.
Here is the recipe and how to make them yourself.
They are SO good. For Reals!
Everyone I know who had tried them, has loved them.
1 1/2 Cup Butter 1 tsp Lemon Extract
2 1/4 Cup Sugar 5 Cups Flour
4 Eggs 2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla 2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Almond Extract
Mix together dry ingredients. (Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt)
Mix together all other ingredients. (Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla, and Extracts)

Cover and let chill for at least an hour. I snacked on some dough while waiting. ;)
Roll dough out and cut out shapes.
Bake at 400 degrees. 6 minutes for thin cookies, 8-10 for thicker cookies.
I cooked mine 6 and it seemed plenty.

This recipe makes a ton of cookies. So you'll need a lot of frosting.
1 stick butter
1 lb of powdered sugar
Dash of Vanilla
A splash of milk.
The milk you have to be careful with because a little bit goes a long way. It's mostly eyeballing it.
I wanted to use colors. So I separated some of the frosting into separate bowls and
added 3 drops of food coloring.
Frost your cookies! I used a plastic bag with the corner cut out to get finer lines.
You're Done! Enjoy!
