Ingredients

Frosting

Instructions

For the Sugar Cookies

  • Blend the butter, sugar and egg together, then add baking powder and soda and almond extract or vanilla.
  • Add 2 cups flour slowly mixing it into the other ingredients. If it seems to sticky, add a bit more flour.
  • If the dough still seems too sticky to roll out, you can pop it into the fridge for 15-20 minutes. Sometimes it’s easier to roll out dough that is more firm.
  • Sprinkle some flour on a cool surface.  Flatten the dough into a one inch thick round circle.  Lightly flour the top of the dough, then roll the dough out to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Careful not to roll them too thin!
  • Using cookie cutters, cut your dough into shapes and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Then repeat until all the dough is gone.
  • Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.  Don't overcook.

For the Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Cream butter and cream cheese together with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer.
  • Add drained raspberries and vanilla and almond extract.
  • Slowly mix in the powdered sugar.  The mixture may seem dry at first but the juice from the raspberries will blend in making it the right consistency.  If it is still too thick, add in some of the drained raspberry juice.

Notes

If you are using a 3 to 4 inch cookie cutter, this recipe will make about a dozen cookies.  The recipe can be doubled or tripled for more cookies.
