If you are a sugar cookie lover like me, you must add these to your collection asap!

I think my favorite part about them is a hint of almond which sets them apart from other sugar cookies.

They also stay soft and melt in your mouth! SO delicious!

These cookies are also PERFECT for a baby shower! You can change the frosting color to match any baby shower theme. Pink, blue, yellow, green!

Another cute idea is to package up 2-3 cookies in a favor bag or box and give to guests as baby shower favors! So cost effective and sweet. And your guests will love them and probably ask you for the recipe.

  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 1/2 cups flour

(note: This makes a ton of frosting. It is definitely for those who love to slather it on thick. you can always 1/2 the recipe and still have enough - if you aren't a huge frosting lover.)

  • 1/2 cup room temperature butter
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 bag powdered sugar (2 lb bag) - if too runny, can add more
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Put 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl (this is additional sugar, not listed above)
  • Take cookies out of refrigerator and dip the bottom of a glass into the bowl of sugar. Carefully flatten each cookie, giving them rough edges.
  • Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Let them sit and rest on the pan for 5 minutes after you take them out of the oven. They will continue to cook as they sit.
