These sweet treats have only 6 ingredients, and they're so easy to make. Plus, you get to exercise creativity and find new ways to decorate these Patriotic Sugar Cookies!
What You'll Need
- 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 3 teaspoons almond extract
- 1 egg
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
- 1 (16-ounce) container white frosting
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, and almond extract until smooth and creamy. Add egg; mix well. Add flour all at once and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Sprinkle extra flour generously on work surface. Work with half the dough at a time, and roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut out cookies, and place on baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough, re-rolling the trimmings to make sure to use all the dough.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are set. (Don't allow cookies to brown!) Cool on wire racks. Frost and decorate cookies as desired. (In this case, we gave it a red, white, and blue theme to celebrate our favorite patriotic holidays, but you can decorate for anything you like!)
