This is my favourite sugar cookie recipe! It is tasty and simple and perfect for making textured pastries. These will rise minimally and maintain original shape nicely. 230g (-1 cup) butter 130g (-1/2 cup) cream cheese 160g (2/3 cup) icing sugar 1 egg yolk 400g (1 1/3 cup) flour 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp almond extract Pinch of salt 1. In a large bowl combine sugar, butter, cream cheese, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg yolk. Beat until smooth 2. Mix in flour until one uniform mass. Separate dough into 2 chunks, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour 3. On a lightly floured surface roll out one piece of dough until it is about 1/8in (3-4mm) thick. Cut into desired shapes using floured cookie cutters. 4. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C 5. Bake cookies at the same temp for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned 6. Remove from cookie sheet immediately and let cool on a cooling rack The trick to making the best sugar cookies is to cut them thick enough and to time the baking process precisely.
