Aubrey’s Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, beaten
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon extract
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
6 cups flour

Mix butter and sugar. Add beaten eggs and mix well. Add vanilla and lemon extract. Then add in the baking powder, salt, soda, and alternate a little milk and then 2-3 cups flour, until all the milk and flour is used. Roll out dough not less than 1/4” thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. You DO NOT want the bottoms of your cookies browned.

**I like to refrigerate the dough so it is not so sticky. Be generous with the flour when you roll out your cookies.**

To decorate, sprinkle with sugar or colored sugar. I use a confectioner sugar icing and color it with food coloring too.
