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!

    They puffed up very nicely. I substituted 1/4 c of powdered sugar, chilled two hours before rolling in sugar and baking. Deb says very cake like. I like too.

    These were so, so good!! I followed the recipe (used 1/2 tsp almond extract) and used a big cookie scoop but the baking time was right around 11 min still--interesting! Was a great way to use up some cream cheese, too--thank you for sharing!

    These are super delicious. I made these after making another sugar cookie recipe to bring to work. I could have just skipped the others these are the best and were all I needed, no one could stop eating them. Crispy outside, soft inside, these are sooooo good. I used a little more vanilla than almond extract and mine didn't flatten out as much as the ones pictured, but they were still delicious. I've already made these twice and I'm about to make some more right now.
