THE Sugar Cookie . . .

I'm fairly confident this is the one I've settled on. Have a Merry...

3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 cup softened butter
1 egg
3 T. cream
1 t. almond extract

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in butter and other ingredients. Blend thoroughly and chill for several hours. Using a rolling pin roll out dough on floured board between wax paper. Roll out to about 1/4" thickness (see post below re: rolling pin gadget). Cut out dough and place on parchment paper. Bake 5 - 8 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove the cookies from the oven as soon as you see them turning color at the base of the cookie. Let cool completely.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
