Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Missy’s Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 ½ Cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Divide dough into 4-5 portions, flatten each into a round disc and wrap well. Chill in the refrigerator a couple of hours or overnight (dough can be frozen). Roll dough out about ¼ inch thick on a floured surface in desired shapes. Bake at 325°F for 12-14 minutes on ungreased cookies sheet. Edges should be just slightly golden. Cool completely and then frost with your favorite frosting. I used this one for the shamrock cookies.  I did have to double the milk and corn syrup as mentioned in the reviews.  I also substituted creme bouquet for the almond extract.

    What’s creme boquet? I’ve never heard of this flavoring.

  6. Cindy Says:

    I buy the flavoring at our local Cake and Candy Supply store. I think it is a mixture of flavorings–like maybe vanilla, lemon etc..
