Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
granulated sugar

Mix powdered sugar, margarine, egg, vanilla and almond extract. Mix in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough into halves; roll each half 3/16 inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut into shapes. (I roll mine on the floured kitchen counter). Sprinkle with colored granulated sugar; place on lightly greased sheet (if you use parchment paper, you can omit the greasing the sheet). Bake until edges are light brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen, 2 inch cookies.
