*¾ cup butter or margarine
*1 teaspoon almond extract
*½ cup granulated sugar
*½ teaspoon vanilla extract
*½ cup sifted confectioners' sugar
*2 cups all-purpose flour
*1/8 teaspoon salt
*1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream butter and sugars in a medium bowl until fluffy.

2. Add egg and extracts; beat until smooth.

3. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt.

4. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. Chill dough 3-4 hours before rolling out.

5. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out cookies and transfer to a greased baking sheet.

6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browed. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Sprinkle with sugar or frost to decorate. Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea!
