Soft Sugar Cookies
March 15, 2007

This is not the best recipe that I have ever tried, but for a very cakey cookie, it is pretty good. I didn't have any almond extract, so I just used 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. I also decided not to make the frosting. I actually added about 15 drops of green food coloring to the batter before adding the flour mixture for a St. Patrick's Day treat for my preschool class. At first, I thought the batter was not thick enough, but I was wrong and they came out fine. But, if you want the dough to be easier to handle, I suggest refrigerating it for about two hours before baking (won't be as sticky). You may also want to lightly spray the cookie sheets with cooking spray too.
