How to Make Pastel Holiday Trees
1In a small bowl, combine the butter (or margarine) and sugar. Beat by hand until fluffy.
2Add the egg, milk and almond extract and mix well.
3Add the flour and salt and mix well. Dough should be stiff. Chill for at least 2 hours.
4When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator and divide into 3 equal parts. Keep one part "as is", add red food coloring to another part and add the green food coloring to the third part.
5Fill the cookie press: spoon dough into cookie press, alternating colors and form (press) into tree shapes onto ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate with sanding sugar.
6Bake at 375 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes or until edges are just brown. Cool on wire racks.
