When you see this badge, you know it will be good! These are the recipes that have passed our test.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl; set aside.
Place sugar and cold butter into bowl of heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat at medium speed until well combined. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract; beat until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until just combined.
While removing dough from bowl, knead to incorporate crumbs and form a smooth dough. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
Cut into shapes with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until just beginning to brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
If planning to cut with intricate cutters, chill dough 30 minutes before rolling and cutting. This ensures your cookies will hold their detailed shape.

Easy recipe, turned out well. They spread out slightly while baking, so leave plenty of room between them. Good flavor!
I used 2 tsp. of vanilla since I didn't have almond extract, and they were delicious!
Cookies came out wonderful! Crispy on edges, slightly soft in middle. First time in 25 years I made perfect sugar cookies. And the recipe is so easy! I made about 42 cookies per batch.
I did not have almond flavoring so I used powdered french vanilla coffee creamer in the first batch which really kicked the flavor. The second batch did the same but used hazelnut coffee creamer.
