My daughter turned 6 this week. A big milestone for her since she already started first grade and all the kids in her class are 6 or 7 already.
We had Frozen theme. there was Vanilla and Chocolate cake. Vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing. A full candy bar and Sugar cookies frosted with blue.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 ½ tsp. almond extract
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 ½ cups sifted flour
Cream butter. Add powdered sugar. Blend in egg, almond extract, vanilla, salt and flour. Chill dough until firm. Roll to ¼” thickness on well-floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375° for 8-10 min. Cookies should not brown. Frost and decorate when cool.
I refrigerated the dough for about 4 hours which I would highly recommend.
