A different sort-of sugar cookie- Vintage Recipe

Yeah, a sugar cookie recipe is a sugar cookie recipe. They are all pretty much about the same, at least in my slightly limited experience. I do love trying different ones though, in hopes of finding the perfect one. I like when a little lemon or orange zest is added, that's super yummy. I like when they bake up nice and fluffy too. I decided to give this vintage sugar cookie recipe a try because it doesn't use granulated sugar, it uses powdered. Interesting. They are halfway between being a fluffy or crisp cookie, so pretty good texture. And the almond extract is a great flavor. I didn't want to mask the almond extract, so we just sprinkled a little bit of sugar crystal on the top. Enjoy ;)

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter, soft
1 egg
1 tea vanilla
1/2 tea almond extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose/ whole wheat flour
1 tea baking soda
1 tea cream of tartar

Mix powdered sugar, butter, 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. Divide dough into halves. Roll each half 3/16 inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut into shapes. Sprinkle with sugar crystals, place on a lightly greased sheet. Bake until edges are a light brown, 7-8 minutes.
