    HisPixie's Note:

    My favorite sugar cookie recipe! I used 1/2 tsp. almond extract and spooned the dough out using a small cookie scoop. These are delectable!

      Wow! Amazing texture and flavor! These cookies are lightly crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, and have a sweet buttery flavor! I love the hint of almond flavor. Preparation was so EASY without having to roll out the dough! They're like miniature versions of Mrs. Field's sugar cookies. I beat (cold) butter and cream cheese very well in a Kitchen Aid mixer and beat in the sugar slowly; they cooked with a perfect light color and cracked beautifully. The only thing I did different was to gently roll each dough ball in course sugar before baking (I tried sprinkling it on at first but it just fell off). I prefer having course sugar on top of sugar cookies. I will definitely make these again! Thank you for sharing this tasty recipe!

      This is the perfect soft sugar cookie!!! All four children and my husband loved these cookies. Husband said they were better than the soft sugar cookies from the bakery. I used 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and no almond extract. Will be making these again & again.
