Something fun my little family does each year is bake and decorate sugar cookies. We listen to Christmas music, eat too much dough, and we have a blast. We are definitely not artists, but it’s a fun and yummy tradition!
- 1 ½ cup of powdered sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon of almond extract
- 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar
- 1 cup of margarine
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 ½ cup of flour
Cream sugar and margarine; mix in eggs and flavorings. Stir in dry ingredients. Refrigerate 2-3 hours. Divide and roll out on a lightly floured surface. Cut and bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
Frost with icing: one part powdered sugar and one part milk. Mix in food coloring. Stir.
Wishing y’all a Merry Christmas!
