1C butter, softened

1tsp almond flavor
2 1/2C flour
Cream butter and sugar, beat in egg yolks and almond ext. Sift flour into mixture 1/2C at a time. Place dough into cookie press. Pipe dough onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 min or until lightly brown.
*With these I like to add food coloring to make the red and green. I divide it in three bowls and add red to one, green to another and keep the third white. It depends on what shapes you have on your cookie press as well. I use the white to make snoflakes with a little powdered sugar dusted on top as soon as they come out of the oven. I use the green to make trees and the red to make wreaths.
Thats all I have for sure this year.. I will be doing some testing on new recipes I have found to see which ones I will add to my plate...
Oh, and I always make dipped pretzels too. They are super easy!! I buy the almond bark at the store (they usually only carry it around the holidays), melt it in the microwave (it comes in a micro safe container and i just melt it in that!) then dip the pretzels in the melted bark. I then set on them wax paper, and usually use some red/green sprinkles (thats my girls favorite part to help with!!) then let cool on the wax paper! Easy and pretty foolproof! :)
