Sugar Cookie
Simplistic sugar cookie dough that is easily manipulated to handle many inclusions and flavor profiles. My base for many of my favorite cookies.

Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter and sugar, until light and fluffy.
  2. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, slowly add the eggs and the vanilla and almond extract. While this is mixing go ahead and combine your dry ingredients.
  3. Stop and scrape down your mixing bowl to make sure everything is mixed properly. Slowly add the dry ingredients a little at a time. The mixture will seem dry, but once ready, it will come together.
  4. Take your dough to a floured surface and roll out to the desired thickness, I prefer mine about 1/4 of an inch thick. But it is your choice entirely. You can also scoop these cookies and press them into rounds with a glass bottom, or your hands if you don’t want to use the cutout method.
  5. Place on baking sheets with 1/2 an inch of room between cookies and bake on 350˚ F for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until the edge just turns golden.
