DIRECTIONS

  • By hand, cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl.
  • Add the first egg and mix well.
  • Add the second egg with the vanilla and almond extracts and mix.
  • Sift the flour into the bowl and mix until smooth--do not overmix.
  • Split the dough into four pieces (two if making a half batch) and pat each section into a disk about 1 1/2 cm thick.
  • Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Between the plastic wrap and some parchment paper, roll out the dough to 1 cm and cut out cookie shapes. Then mush together and re-roll scraps.
  • Place cutouts on parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to chill again. (They will then hold their shape better when baked after chilling. I sometimes chill overnight and bake the next day.).
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F or 176°C.
  • Bake cookies for 8-15 minutes or until the edges are golden. (The baking time will depend on the size of your cookie. In my oven, 4 inch cookies take 15 minutes).
  • Let cookies cool to room temperature and decorate!
