Sharing the Love

Valentine Day seemed the perfect occasion to share a little unexpected love from the kitchen not only for my family but a couple of friends that needed a little heart warming sweetness. It's a simple recipe that brings a smile to any age cookie lover, especially when in the shape of hearts,tractors and cows.

Deluxe Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter,softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon cream of tarter
Granulated sugar

Mix butter,confectioners sugar,egg,vanilla and almond extract. Blend in flour,soda and cream of tarter. Cover and chill 2-3 hours.

 Heat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough in half. Roll each half 3/16 inch thick on lightly floured  board. Cut into desired shapes. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes.
