Sugar Cookie Cutouts

I have not tried these yet but was recently given the recipe and told was really good.

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup margarine or butter softened
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 cups original Bisquick
Coarse sugar crystals (decorating sugar), colored glitter sugar or granulated sugar if desired

Stir all ingredients except Bisquick and granulated sugar in large bowl until well blended. Stir in Bisquick until soft dough forms. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until chilled.

Heat oven to 400. Roll 1/4 of the dough at a time 1/8" thick on surface sprinkled with Bisquick.
(Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll) Cut into desired shapes. Place about 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle cookies with sugar crystals.

Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack to cool.

Approximately 3 dozen
