Each family has to bring a dozen treats for the party. That sounds like a lot but most of the families have many more than 1 child. I baked these beauties yesterday with help from my daughter. I have had the recipe from a friend since the late eighties and they are in a word amazing. I didn't double the recipe because I forgot that you really need to. It only makes about 15 cookies but they are the best you will ever have. Even Sydney and my mom can only eat one. Sydney ate one yesterday and told me she was still full today from the cookie!
Vanilla Almond Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing!
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
mix sugar, butter, egg vanilla, almond extract. Mix in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. cover and ref. bake at 375 8 to 10 min. I just watch them after 8 min.
Then you frost with cream cheese icing (the kind in the can).
