Soft Sugar Cookies w/ Almond Icing

Very yummy but not so good for the diet.   Don't over cook.  They will be soft and delicious.


1-1/2  c sugar
1 c butter, softened
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract (or any other flavor)
4-1/2 c AP flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt

Cream sugar, butter, and eggs until smooth. Add flavorings. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Once combined, add to wet ingredients until combined.
Chill dough for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 350.
Divide chilled dough in half. Roll out dough into a 1/4-inch thick circle. Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Continue to roll out all dough until it has all been used (or eaten). ;)
Bake 6-8 minutes. Let cool on pan for a few minutes to complete the cooking. Transfer to wire rack.
Cool completely before frosting.

1/2 c butter, softened
3 c powdered sugar
1/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2  – 1 tsp almond extract (or any other flavoring)
Beat all ingredients and keep firm but spreadable. Add more powdered sugar if needed.
