the ultimate sugar cookie

okay natalie & natalee, your sugar cookies are to DIE for!  these are so incredibly delicious.
i followed your recipe exactly and voila!  they are so fluffy, moist and flavorful!
they are definitely the best sugar cookie i've baked!  i have to admit i was a bit nervous about the almond extract.  i am usually not a fan, but i tried it anyway and i'm so glad i did!  i'm sure you could replace it with more vanilla extract if you didn't want to add it, but i thought it was just the right amount- definitely not too over powering.

and it was SO fun to use my new scalloped cutters!  this was the perfect recipe for my silly nostalgic moment!  thank you so much for sharing!  here is the recipe again:
