Servings 36 cookies


  • 4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter slightly softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a few baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until smooth - about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition.
  • Add vanilla and optional almond extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the mixer, mix on low until incorporated. The dough will be soft. If it is too sticky, add an additional 1/2 cup of flour.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll it to be about 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to make shape the cookies into your desired shape.
  • Place cookies on a baking sheet a few inches apart.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.
  • Let cookies cool completely before decorating.
