Ingredients

  • 1 - Ā½ cup Butter I Use Unsalted
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 whole Eggs Yolks
  • 4 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Almond Extract
  • 4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Instructions

  • In a mixer, beat butter and sugar until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks and mix until combined.
  • Add in vanilla and almond extract; mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly (about a cup at a time) add flour to butter mixture and combine. You can use a mixer or not, just depends on how strong you are.
  • I usually just mix ingredients until they are combined.
  • Put dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. When you are ready to bake, heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Roll dough out, cut out cookies, and bake for 6-8 minutes.
