Christmas Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. butter flavoring
2 tsp. almond extract
1.  Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and flavorings. If you want to color your dough, you can add the coloring now as well. I like Wilton’s concentrated paste because it doesn’t water down the recipe. (Or if you want several colors, just wait until you’ve made your dough and separate it into sections and mix it in then.)
2.  If you are using salted butter, you don’t need to add salt in your recipe. If you are using unsalted, add 1/4 tsp. Add flour (and salt if needed) to butter/sugar and mix until dough forms.
3.  Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet using a cookie press. Add sprinkles. Bake @ 400 degrees for 7 minutes.
4.  Store in air tight container. These cookies freeze really well.
***Yield: 4-5 dozen cookies***
