  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract and beat well.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until well mixed.

  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll about 1/2 tablespoon of plain dough into a 6-inch rope. Repeat with green dough.

Maybe I left it in the fridge too long but I could not get this dough to roll out into a rope. It would break and crumble. I let the dough sit out for a few hours and tried again and same thing....

this is my favorite holiday treat!! refrigerate closer to 45 minutes. cook for about 12-13 minutes; only slightly golden brown on the bottom. absolutey delicious!

Pretty and delicious
