- 1 Cup butter, softened.
- 1/2 Cup white sugar.
- 2 Teaspoons almond extract.
- 2 Cups sifted all-purpose flour.
- 1/3 Cup powdered sugar.
Place butter, 1/2 cup of white sugar, and almond extracts in a bowl, and combine until fluffy. Add the flour, stirring gently with a wooden spoon until you get a soft dough.
Place dough into a pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes. Roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick and sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. Cut dough into desired shapes using cookie cutters.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 300 degrees F or until light golden brown around the edges. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
