"This is based on a sugar cookie recipe that I found through Pinterest (http://sweetopia.net/2009/12/sugar-cookie-recipe/). 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"
