Since Christmas is less than two weeks away, preparations for the holiday season are in full swing. The lights are hung, the tree is decorated, and the cookies are ready to be baked. This classic cookie recipe is perfect for the chilly winter months, and pairs perfectly with hot chocolate. It only requires a few simple ingredients and will be the hit of any party or gift exchange.  

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened 
  • ½ cup sugar  
  • 1 egg 
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour 
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract  

Directions: 

  1. Heat oven to 400˚. Beat butter, sugar and egg in large bowl with electric mixer or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients. 
  1. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheet. 
  1. Top with festive sprinkles or decorations of your choosing. 
  1. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack; cool completely. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this recipe. My mom and I make these cookies every year around Christmas, and they always bring memories of family and love. The buttery flavor with a hint of almond is a change from a traditional sugar cookie, and the various shapes you can make with the cookie press make it festive and fun. It only requires a few simple ingredients and it is easy to make large quantities in a short time period. Adding toppings like walnuts, or peppermint candies can enhance the flavor even more, making it a recipe that no one will be able to resist this Christmas.
