I am looking forward to those blessings!!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract I know, most of you hate almond extract in cookies...it's just a little bit though..make sure you measure it.
4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Cram the butter and sugar together...really cream it...take some time...it should be light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, almond extract, and sour cream. Combine all the dry ingredients together and sift. Yup I said sift...it's worth it. Combine in parts-just don't dump it in and mix until combined. Form into a ball and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate it for an hour. Later roll out cookies to desired thickness- no less than a 1/4 inch or they will be crispy. Bake on parchment paper for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool on a wire rack.
