Vacation Memories

The kids cut up an old map and glued it to compasition notebook, so that they could spend some time writing this summer. What better to write about other than our trip to the beach? All this writing about the beach made us hungry for a snack, so I made these cute sand dollar sugar cookies by using a basic sugar cookie recipe and adding slithered almonds. Here's a good recipe for yummy sugar cookies....

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
