{Favorite Sugar Cookies}

This is my all time favorite cookie! I love making these for one of my favorite holidays…Valentines!!

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cups flour
In a large bowl or mixer mix sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, almond and vanilla extracts and egg yolk. Beat until smooth. Mix in flour until dough forms. Chill for a couple hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thick. Cut into whatever shape you want, place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes. If they look a little under done that is okay. You don’t even want these to brown.
*Frosting*
1 cube butter, softened
1/2 bag of powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs milk
1/2 tsp almond extract
