"A soft, chewy, and flavorful sugar cookie. It is very important to chill the dough, as it is too sticky to roll unless well chilled."

Ingredients

1 c
white sugar
1 c
butter, softened
3 oz
package cream cheese softened
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
almond extract
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1

2 1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg yolk. Beat until smooth. Stir in flour until well blended. Chill the dough for 8 hours, or overnight.
2
When dough is properly chilled,
preheat over to 375 degrees
3
Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light and golden brown. Cool cookies completely before frosting.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough 1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness, refrigerating remaining dough until ready to use. Cut into desired shapes with lightly floured cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Leave cookies plain for frosting, or brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with candy sprinkles or colored sugar.

Frost with green food coloring added to the frosting of your choice.
