In a large mixing bowl, cream together 1 cup butter, ½ cup brown sugar, and ⅔ cup granulated sugar.
Add egg, 2 tsp vanilla, and ½ tsp almond extract. Mix until well combined.
Next mix in 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp nutmeg, and ¼ tsp cinnamon.
Finally add in 3 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing dough with each addition. Mix dough until all flour is incorporated, and you have a consistent dough.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Take out your dough from the refrigerator and roll it out onto a lightly floured surface to ¼ inch thickness.
Using your cookie cutters, make shapes in your rolled out sugar cookie dough. Remove the excess dough around each shape you make.
Transfer your sugar cookie shapes onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper, placing them 1 inch apart.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Allow your cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes before decorating. Enjoy!
You can keep the cookie dough in the freezer up to 3 weeks before baking.
