Elizabeth's Sugar Cookies

• 1 cup butter (softened)
• 3 oz cream cheese (softened)
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 t. vanilla
• 1 t. almond extract
• 1/2 t. salt
• 2 1/2 cups flour

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla & almond extract and mix until combined. Mix dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Mix well. Chill dough for several hours. Roll and cut into shapes using some flour as the dough will be sticky. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until set. Makes about 2-3 dozen cookies depending on the size.

Notes: These are the best sugar cookies. We made them for Valentines Day. I only make them once or twice a year though because of the labor involved. I like to frost them with cream cheese frosting.
