1 cup unsalted butter, softened
⅔ cup granulated sugar
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract
2 cups of flour
¼ teaspoon salt
colored sugars or glitter to decorate
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I put my cookie sheet in the refrigerator to cool, this helps prevent the dough from spreading.In a small bowl, combine the flour and salt and set aside.Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, vanilla and almond extract and mix until well blended. Mix the dry ingredients a little at a time until they are well combined.Fill your cookie press with dough and press 2 inches apart on the refrigerated cookie sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until sides just start to brown. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for 3 to 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
