  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine powdered sugar and shortening in a large bowl; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, salt, water, vanilla and almond extracts. Using a spoon, stir in flour until well mixed. Stir in ground nuts.
  2. Fit cookie press with desired template. Fill cookie press; press dough onto ungreased baking sheets. Press almond slices onto the center of the cookies, if desired.
  3. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set, but not brown. Cool one minute. Remove to cooling rack.


  • * 1 cup Crisco(R) Butter Shortening equals 1 stick Crisco(R) Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening Sticks
  • TIP: If dough becomes too soft, refrigerate about 5 minutes or until firm.



Good dough consistency but kind of bland. Has a very floury taste. I would make again, but add a little more flavor/sugar.
