Best Sugar Cookies from Julie

I received this recipe from an online friend and I love it! All my sugar cookies are from this recipe. So are my linzer cookies, filled with lemon curd... Oh yeah...

Best Sugar Cookies

2 c. sugar
2 c. butter
3 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract
Cream above together, then add:
1 tsp. salt
6 c. flour – add only enough of the flour to the creamed mixture to handle the dough (I use between 5 and 5-1/2 cups) without being tough. Chill dough about an hour. Roll cookies out on floured board and cut with cookie cutters. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Decorate with royal icing or buttercream.

It does make a big batch and yes, you can freeze the dough. I do it every year for holiday cookies. Just thaw it in the fridge a day or two before baking and you’re good to go.
