Butter Cookie Dough
1 cup salted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons whipping cream (I just used light cream)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (I didn't use that, I subbed 1/2 tsp peppermint extract)
3 cups unbleached flour (I had to use a bit more because it is a bit humid today)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a mixer combine butter and sugar. Add egg, cream, vanilla, and almond extract all at once and thoroughly blend.
In a separate bowl stir together flour and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and blend.
Roll out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch and cut with a cookie cutter. Bake on a greased cookie sheet 8 to 12 minutes and cool on a rack.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies. (Dough does not need to be chilled before using.)
I made them into large hearts so it only made 2 dozen cookies and the peppermint flavor is not over powering at all.
I love Wilton sprinkles!
