    Dwynnie's Note:

    This is based on a sugar cookie recipe that I found through Pinterest ( I really like the flavor, and for all that does spread a little bit (note: the more you work the dough, the more it spreads), it is my new favorite sugar cookie recipe. I especially like making half batches--just enough for two cookie sheets worth! I made a few modifications and made a few changes to the directions. Prep time includes chill time and cook time is for 4 cookie sheets. (As a side note, I really like the three stages of the recipe--10 minutes to mix, then chill, --10 minutes to cut out, then chill, then bake. With the breaks, I find it easier to fit this recipe into an afternoon playing with my children) Added here are the measurements for a 3/4 size batch, as I have found it helpful: 3/4 cup butter 3/4 cup shortening 3/8 cup granulated sugar 1 1/8 cup brown sugar 1 1/2 egg 1 1/2 Tbs vanilla 3/16 tsp almond 4.5 cups flour

    4 inch ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      By hand, cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Add the first egg and mix well.
    3. 3
      Add the second egg with the vanilla and almond extracts and mix.
    4. 4
      Sift the flour into the bowl and mix until smooth--do not overmix.
    5. 5
      Split the dough into four pieces (two if making a half batch) and pat each section into a disk about 1 1/2 cm thick.
    6. 6
      Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Between the plastic wrap and some parchment paper, roll out the dough to 1 cm and cut out cookie shapes. Then mush together and re-roll scraps.
    8. 8
      Place cutouts on parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to chill again. (They will then hold their shape better when baked after chilling. I sometimes chill overnight and bake the next day.).
    9. 9
      Preheat your oven to 350°F or 176°C.
    10. 10
      Bake cookies for 8-15 minutes or until the edges are golden. (The baking time will depend on the size of your cookie. In my oven, 4 inch cookies take 15 minutes).
    11. 11
      Let cookies cool to room temperature and decorate!
