My Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe and a Cute Belly

Today, I am baking my favorite sugar cookies for Jenny's baby shower tomorrow. Pink hearts for a grand baby. Yup, a girl.

Hmm ... I may need to rename this recipe.

Grand baby Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

add to creamed mixture:

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Refrigerate dough. Roll 1/8" thick and cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 325 degrees for 7-8 minutes. Do not brown the cookies.

Frosting ~ 3 tablespoons butter, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1-2 tablespoons milk, pink food coloring.

This recipe is from my friend, Connie, "the cookie lady." You will enjoy this story of how Connie discovered her ministry of cookie baking.

And Happy Valentine's Day, dear friends. Wish I could share a cookie with you.
