Ingredients

cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

FROSTING

2 cups sifted confectioners sugar(must be sifted)
1 tablespoon milk(adding more if needed)
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
food coloring

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For cookies, in a large bowl combine butter with sugar, eggs, vanilla and almond extract. Beat using an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy.
2
In another bowl combine the flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt, gradually stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
3
Set oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. On a very lightly floured surface roll out the dough into about 1/4 inch thickness.
4
Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 4 - 6 minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely before icing.
5
For the frosting in a small bowl mix the confectioners sugar with milk(start with 1 - 2 tablespoons) you will most likely need more milk. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until the icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick add a small amount more of corn syrup.
6
Divide into as many separate bowls as you wish for different colors. Add the food coloring until desired intensity is achieved.
7
Pain the icing over the cookies using a brush or dip the edges of cookies into the icing. Allow to set on wax paper.
