Christmas Sugar Cookies

INGREDIENTS:
Sugar Cookies
* 2-1/2 c All Purpose Flour
* ¼ c. Corn starch
* ¼ tsp Salt
* ¾ c. Butter Unsalted room temperature
* ¾ c. Granulated Sugar
* 1 Large Egg room temperature
* 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
* ½ tsp Almond Extract
Royal Icing
* 4 c. powdered sugar
* 3 Tbsp Meringue powder
* 9-10 Tbsp water room temperature
* Gel Food Coloring optional

INSTRUCTIONS:
Sugar Cookies
Sift the flour, corn starch and salt into a medium sized mixing bowl.
Run a whisk through it to mix well and set aside.
With a stand mixer, In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and the sugar together, on medium speed, until creamy, about 5 minutes.
Turn the mixer to low and add the egg while beating, then add the vanilla and almond extract.
One cup at a time add the flour mixture until it is well incorporated. The sugar cookie dough will pull away from the mixing bowl at this point.
Take the dough and form a ball, then flatten out into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
Take a rolling pin and roll out to about ¼” – ½” thick.
Using a 2-1/2” round cookie cutter, cut as many discs out of the dough as possible and place onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat (or parchment paper).
Take the remaining dough and mold into a ball again and roll out again. Cut out more cookies until all the dough has been used.
Place the baking sheet into the oven and cook for 12 minutes. Turn the tray around half way.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little on the baking sheet before transporting to a wire rack.
Once cooled completely decorate as desired.
