Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 8 ozs softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tsps almond extract (divided)
  • water
  1. Whisk flour and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sugar and almond extract and continue to beat until pale and fluffy. 
  3. Slowly add flour mixture to your wet misture and mix on low speed, scraping sides regularly until flour is just incorporated and dough sticks together when squeezed with fingers. 
  4. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate until firm (at least an hour).
  5. Once dough has chilled, remove from fridge and let soften a few minutes. In the meantime, line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  6. Flour the counter and your rolling pin and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to create desired shapes. Repeat until all dough has been used. 
  7. Bake until golden, 13-15 minutes and let cool completely before decorating.

Icing: Stir together confectioners sugar, water, and almond extract to desired consistency. Add food coloring as desired and decorate!
