These are really cool little sugar cookies that you can give as Christmas gifts to friends and family.

12 tablespoons butter, softened
⅓ cup sugar
¼ tsp. salt
1 large egg
½ tsp. vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 ¾ all purpose flour
¼ whole wheat flour
Step 2: Preheat
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 3: Wet Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, whip butter with salt and sugar until creamy.
Add vanilla, egg, almond extract and mix until combined.
Step 4: Dry Ingredients

Step 5: Baking
Option no. 1: You can roll out the dough and cut out the cookies with cookie cutters.
Or Option no. 2: You can do it the ‘Spritz’ way and use a cookie press (I used OXO cookie press) and press cookies. Place/Press cookies onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone mat on baking sheet.
Add sprinkles if you want to make it look pretty.
Bake for about 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown.
