Sugar Cookies

Charlie and Jack helped make these, today.  
They serenaded me with Jack singing, "Hosanna!"
and Charlie singing, "When I take my bath, I think of you, Lord."
They were rehearsing for their upcoming church performance.
These are soft in the centers and crisp on the outside.

Makes 24 Cookies

1 c unsalted butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 c flour
additional sugar for rolling
