How to Make Almond Paste Cookies
- Place almond paste in micro-safe bowl and microwave on high for 25 seconds to slightly soften.
- Add butter and sugars, beat until fluffy. Add eggs and extracts. Gradually add flour, mix until soft dough forms.
Divide dough into thirds, wrap in plastic and chill for at least an hour.
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out with cookie cutters. Put on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes until lightly browned. Cook on wire rack.
