a certain frosted sugar cookie sold in retail stores that is also light and fluffy.
I am sharing this recipe with all of you.
Here is what to do and what you will need:
½ cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
Cream with a mixer (or by hand) until light and fluffy
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional: ½ teaspoon almond extract as well~ I didn’t use almond but it is very good with it).
Now for the dry ingredients:
2 and ²/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Place your shapes on a cookie sheet (I like to line mine with parchment paper).
You can use a turning spatula that is floured to ease these off your surface.
Test for doneness by lightly touching the top of the cookie if an impression is made with your finger then cook 2 minutes longer.
These cookies are VERY tender, fluffy and purposely only very lightly browned.
You can frost or leave plain.
