If you love sugar cookies but hate the rolling and cutting out part, this recipe is for you. These cookies just melt in your mouth and only take about 20 minutes to make.

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-1/4 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder (not baking soda)
1-1/2 tsp salt
Beat together sugar and butter until creamy. Mix in eggs, milk, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to sugar mixture and mix until flour is just barely incorporated. Do not over mix! Press into a jelly-roll pan (dough is too soft to cut out with cookie cutters.) Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Do not over bake. Cool completely before frosting. (I cheat by putting mine into the freezer for a quick cook down.) Cut into 2" bars.
1/2 C butter
1 lb powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
Beat butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and almond extract together in a large bowl. While beating add milk until mixture becomes smooth and a frosting-like consistency.
