12 Cookies of Christmas: Day 11

Here's another one of my Nana's recipes that has been handed down.  You know recipes are going to be good when they're hand written on cards.  You can make these cookies for any occasion.  I made them for Halloween and used themed cookie cutters.  For Christmas, I added in some red food coloring.  The possibilities are endless.

Nana's Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (sifted)
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour, sifted

Mix in egg, vanilla and almond extracts
Blend in dry ingredients
Chill for 2-3 hours
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Press out dough and cut into desired shape
Place on a greased cookie sheet, or sheet lined with parchment paper
Bake for 7-8 minutes
