Recipe Servings


1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 Land O Lakes® Egg

2 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Sanding sugar

Red and blue gel food color, as desired


Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy.

Add egg, milk and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed.

Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Divide dough into thirds; place each portion into separate bowls.

Tint 1 portion with red food color and 1 portion with blue food color to desired shade.

Shape each dough into ball; flatten each ball to 1/2-inch thickness.

Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 2-3 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 400°F.

Working with half of each dough color (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), drop tablespoon-size pieces of dough from each color onto well-floured surface in random pattern with dough pieces touching. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, forming marbled design. Cut with 2 1/2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter.

Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.

Bake 6-8 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.
