My Cut-out Cookies (double batch)

2 c butter, softened

3 c sugar

2 eggs

2 t vanilla extract

2 t almond extract

5 1/2 c flour

4 t baking powder

2 t salt

1. Preheat oven to 400. In mixer bowl, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy.

2. Beat in eggs and extracts.

3. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture a little at a time, mixing after each addition. At this point, I divide the dough in two and place in large sealable bags.

4. Roll out dough and use cookie cutters to make your favorite cookies.

5. Bake 6-7 minutes. Cool completely before decorating.
