As I was feeling creative I combine two recipes to make a melt in your mouth kind of cookie.
First I gave each boy there own bowl as we were doubling the batch. In one bowl I added red food coloring.
In each bowl we mixed:
3/4 c soft butter (or soy butter for those with milk allergies)
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 c flour
Place bowls in fridge for a few hours.
Roll out each dough and then stack. Cut around the edges so they are even. Begin to roll the dough.
