       Title: Best Sugar Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 36 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Powdered sugar; sifted
       1 c  Butter or margarine; soften
       1 ts Vanilla extract
     1/2 ts Almond extract
       1    Egg
   2 1/2 c  Flour
       1 ts Baking soda
       1 ts Cream of tartar
  
     Cream the powdered sugar and butter. Add vanilla, almond extract and egg
   and combine well. Sift together the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.
   Add to sugar mixture and stir until well combined. Chill at least 2-3 hours
   before rolling to about 1/4 thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut with
   heart-shaped cutter (or other shape), and place on lightly greased cookie
   sheets. Bake in preheated 375` oven 7-8 minutes, or until lightly browned.
   Makes 3-4 dozen cookies, depending on size of cookie cutters.
     NOTE: For a fun variation, spread thawed Frozen Whipped Topping on one
   heart-shaped cookie, about 3/4 thick. Place another cookie the same size
   on top. Repeat with as many cookies as desired. Freeze on cookie sheets
   about 4 hours, or until firm. Quickly remove from sheets, and pack in an
   airtight container for freezer. May be kept frozen up to 2 weeks.
