Make It Monday...

This recipe is really from my friend Jodie, but I made them this weekend for Lyndsey's cookie party. They turned out really well...almost as good as Jodie's!

Frosted Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 cup powder sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almost extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
Mix sugar and butter until well blended. Add egg and flavorings. Mix well. Stir in dry ingredients. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Roll into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes.
For frosting:
2 cups powder sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 tbs milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
food coloring (optional)
Mix together sugar and shortening. Gradually mix in the milk and vanilla until smooth and stiff (you can add a little more milk, if needed). Color with food coloring if desired. Frost cookies.
