Substitute 1/2 tsp. almond extract for the vanilla.

    This is my family's favorite cookie recipe. I add an egg, extra real vanilla and an egg when I make it and we decorate it with royal icing. When I take something to an event, these cookies are what everyone requests. Make sure to chill them extra well before rolling out.

    These are definitely not traditional sugar cookies. They are more like a pastry and very bland. This recipe is very similar to my kolaczki recipe. If you can get away from the fact of this being a sugar cookie, then they are good cookies - just don't expect to eat a sugar cookie. Also, I glazed them to add some sweetness.
