Ingredients

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/2

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 3

    cups flour

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • Colored sugars for decorating

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Make sure to spoon the flour into your measuring cup and level it off with a knife to ensure accurate measurements. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until completely combined. Roll the dough between 2 sheets of parchment or wax paper and place on a baking sheet in the refrigerator. Chill for about 20 to 30 minutes. Cut dough into shapes with cookie cutters and transfer to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugars and bake at 350°F for 8 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a baking rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 40 to 50 cookies.
