Best Ever Sugar Cookies

Elena writes: I made these for my husband and he just LOVED them.

BTW, Elena was lazy this year and only made about 12 different kinds of cookies for her holiday cookie extravaganza instead of the 20ish she usually makes. So if Elena the cookie-godess says they are the best ever, she probably knows what she's talking about!

Best Ever Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2- 1 tsp almond extract (really does it!)
2 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Mix in rest of wet ingredients, then add flour one cup at a time. do not chill the dough.
4. Cut 1/8 inch thick and cook for 6-7 min for chewy, 8-9 for a browned butter effect (quite yummy)!

makes about 9 doz small cookies
