All Hallows Eve Cookies

These cookies can be made on All Hallow's Eve and can can be shaped like people and the herb rosemary is added to the dough as a symbol of remembrance.

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 tbsp chopped rosemary

Heat oven 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract, and rosemary until creamy. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture. Beat until dough forms and refrigerate for three hours. Divide dough into halves. Roll out one portion to 3/16
of an inch on a floured surface. Cut out with gingerbread women or men cutters and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat rolling and cutting with second portion.
