Sugar Cookies

Now that it's almost been a month since Valentines Day, I guess I better post these.  My sister brought these to us for Valentines Day.  She has the most awesome recipe for sugar cookies.  I have also made these several times and they are really pretty quick and easy.  The trick is to not roll them out too thin and to not over cook them.  They are so delicious, make them for a holiday and then find someone to give most of them to or you will end up eating the whole batch! So here is her recipe.   Enjoy!!

1 lb. margarine
3 eggs
2 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
6 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
-cream sugar, margarine, eggs and flavorings until very fluffy.  Mix in dry ingredients until well blended.  Chill and roll out to 1/4 in thick.  Cut out shapes and put on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 min.

1 C shortening
1 C butter
dash salt
2 tsp vanilla
full 1 lb bag powdered sugar
milk- add to thin
- mix altogether and color if desired.  You can use this for spreading and decorating.
