Yield: 48 Servings
|1 cup||Butter flavored shortening|
|½ teaspoon||Almond extract|
Heat oven to 400°. Cream shortening and sugar in large bowl in medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg, salt, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir in flour. Place dough in cookie press. Press into desired shapes 2 inches apart on cooled, ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 5 to 7 minutes or until set, but not brown. Cool on baking sheet one minute. Remove to cooling rack.Dough may be tinted using a few drops of food coloring. You can ice the cookies and decorate if you like. I tint one batch green, put half a red hot in center. Using the pin wheel press it will look like a wreath or holly. This is a very pretty cookie. Do not ruin them by letting them brown.
