3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt1 cup sugar

1 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract


Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl; set aside.

Place sugar and cold butter into bowl of heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat at medium speed until well combined. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract; beat until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until just combined.

While removing dough from bowl, knead to incorporate crumbs and form a smooth dough. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.

Cut into shapes with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until just beginning to brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Recipe Tip 

If planning to cut with intricate cutters, chill dough 30 minutes before rolling and cutting. This ensures your cookies will hold their detailed shape.
