Cut-Out Sugar Cookies



  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 and 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For these guys, cut butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender (or with two knives if you’re not with one of those parts on your mixer). It’ll ball up. In a seperate bowl beat the eggs and cream together, then add them to the dry ingredients and mix up, add in the extract and almond flavoring and mix that too. Than that’s it! It’s best to chill the dough before rolling and cutting it out, just because it will handle it better!

Bake them for about 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, watch them, they should not brown!

Add icing if you’d like! But after they cool of course!

Recipes: Danish Wedding Cookies

My mom swears that these cookies go by a thousand names. My grandmother calls them Danish Wedding Cookies, so that’s what I’m going to call them. They are super, super easy. They’re little pecan cookies and are delicious. Probably the simplest recipe ever and really easy for a beginner. There not super sweet, but they still have a very nice cookie sweetness!


  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 sticks of butter (salted)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans

You mix all the ingredients in the mixer (it doesn’t matter in what order!) Then you take the dough and form it into little balls (try to keep them about the same size).

Pop them in an oven preheated to 350F for about 20 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.

Let them cool down, then you get to roll them in powdered sugar! Super easy!
