Dear Lizzie’s Sugar Cookies

*BEWARE: these cookies are really addictive and very delicious.*

1 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3 TBSP milk
3 tsp vanilla or lemon extract
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
4 1/2-5 cups flour (depends on how sticky you like the dough to be)

Cover and refridgerate for a couple of hours.

Roll out so it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Cool completely, then frost.

FROSTING
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
2 1bs powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
evaporated milk or regular milk to consistency you like

(This frosting recipe makes about double what you need for 1 batch of cookies; so I usually 1/2 it or double cookie batter)
