|1 tablespoon||Almond or vanilla extract|
|½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|Jelly or Thin Confectioners|
Heat oven to 375. Mix butter, sugar, egg & flavoring until creamy.
Mix dry ingredients; blend into butter mixture. Divide dough in half.
Reserve half for trim. Roll remaining half into two rectangles, 12*6", on well floured cloth covered board. Cut each rectangle lengthwise in 3 equal strips. With spatula, carefully lift each strip onto ungreased baking sheet, placing 1" apart. Spoon reserved cookie dough into cookie press. If dough is too dry to go through press, work in 1-2 tsp. cream. Using smallest star design, press out in long ropes on each side of each strip & also one down center. Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool. Fill in between the rows of "trim" with jelly or Icing. Cut carefully 1" diagonal pieces with sharp knife.
