Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Prepare 2 baking sheets and set aside.
  • Cream together sugar and butter for 3 minutes or until fluffy

  • Blend in 1/4 cup buttermilk, vanilla and almond extract
  • Add 2 1/2 cups flour (1/2 cup at a time)

  • Roll to 1/4 in thickness
  • Cut out with favorite shapes and transfer to prepared pan
  • Bake 10-12 minutes until the edges just start to get a hint of golden brown, making sure to not overcook
