Sugar Cookie Recipe

(Here you go Bobbie!)

This is a recipe that I got from a family friend, Debbie Beane. She makes the most amazing sugar cookies and decorates them beautifully! As a child I can always remember LOVING those cookies...they are probably my favorite dessert.

1/2 c shortening
1 c sugaR
2 eggs
2 T canned milk
1 T almond extract
3 1/2 c flour
2 t baking powder

Bake at 350 for 8-10 mins. (do not let them get brown)

As for the icing...I don't really have a is my best guess as to what I used
2 t almond extract
1/2 c warm milk
2 T shortening
1 box powdered sugar
1 T food coloring

I think this is about right...I'm not exactly certain of the amounts.

Oh, Jenny! Thank you so much for providing the recipe. I worked with Debbie Beane at ExxonMobil, so that makes them even more special! They sound delicious and I'm anxious to attempt to make them - not sure they will be as pretty as yours! And, what a blessing your friends are to you. The Valentine's party was so special, I'm sure. You were absolutely stunning in your red dress and Brad looked quite pleased to have you by his side!! You are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
