Ingredients
  

Cookie

  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Frosting

  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • food coloring

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Cream butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg and almond in large bowl (or Kitchen-Aid) until fluffy.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir until soft dough forms.
  • Roll out and cut with cookie cutter. Thin dough will make crunchy cookies. If you want soft dough, it needs to be about ⅜ in. {NOTE: Try not to handle the dough too much}
  • Bake 8-10 minutes on greased pan. Let cool.
  • Make frosting by mixing all ingredients with hand mixer. If too thick, add a tad more milk. Frost cookies and ENJOY!
