Our friend Logan Wolfram gives us what she calls the Best Sugar Cooies of All Time: 

HIS Morning Crew Cookie Swap

Amazing Sugar Cookies 

yield: about 75 medium cookies

  • 24 ounces butter (softened)
  • 20 ounces powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 3 whole eggs, plus
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 ounce vanilla extract
  • 1/4 ounce almond extract
  • 6 1/2 cups flour
Directions:
  1. With paddle attachment, mix butter for 30 seconds. Add a 1/3 of the powdered sugar, mix on first speed for 1 minute. Add another 1/3 of the powdered sugar, mix another minute. Finally, add the last 1/3 of sugar, mix 1 minute.
  2. Combine eggs, vanilla, and almond extract together, add to butter/sugar mixture. Mix for 30 seconds.
  3. Add a 1/3 of the flour, mix 1 minute.
  4. Scrape.
  5. Add the next 1/3 of the flour, mix 2 minutes.
  6. Scrape.
  7. Add the final 1/3 of the flour, mix 3 minutes.
  8. Refrigerate until able to be rolled out and cut into desired shapes. (if you’re using the dairy free version i told above,  I’d refrigerate it  24 hrs before rolling out to make sure it really sets up.) Bake at 350 for 9-15 minutes depending on the size you cut them!)
