Start with 1 C. of softened butter. What better way to begin a recipe?!?!
Add powdered sugar, egg, vanilla, and...
my FAVORITE ingredient in any recipe = almond extract! (I love this flavor!)
Add flour, soda and cream of tartar, a little at at time. Place this dough in refrigerator for an hour or so (can be up to 2 days.) I love to make this ahead and have it on hand to just throw some cookies in the oven when I have the time!
Roll out on floured surface and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 for 7 min. (I like them a little soft!)
Once they are cooled, I make a simple glaze for icing and then put on the sprinkles! Find a festive plate and there you have it!
