Sugar cookie recipe:

1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all purpose flour

Bake 350 for 8 minutes! Recipe adapted from HERE, click HERE for the rest of the directions. Ps. I like a thick cookie so I made sure not to roll my cookies “too thin” see photo above.

Icing Frosting:

1/4 cup meringue powder
1 cup cold water (NOT hot)
2-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix these all together, just watch the consistency, if your needing thicker frosting for piping then add powdered sugar. If you need thinner, add water, just a couple drops goes a long ways. Use the thick frosting to outline the cookie. Use a piping bag + frosting tip. Use the thinner frosting to flood the rest of the cookie.

Tip: I let the frosting completely dry overnight and I went back and added white dots onto the trees, next I used a clean paint brush to push the frosting up, this gives the trees a “snowy” look.
