● 1 tsp. baking powder 

● 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 

● 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 

● 1 cup granulated sugar 

● 1 large egg 

● 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 

● 1 tbsp. milk 

FOR THE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING 

● 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 

● 5 cups powdered sugar 

● 1/4 cup heavy cream 

● 1/2 tsp. pure almond extract 

● 1/4 tsp. kosher salt 

● Food coloring 

Directions: 

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set the mixture aside after. 2. In another large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined, then add flour mixture gradually until totally combined. 

3. Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for an hour. 

4. When ready to roll, preheat the oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out the dough until 1/8” thick. 5. Cut out shapes and transfer to prepared baking sheets. You can use cookie cutters for fun shapes. You can also make your own if you’re feeling creative. Freeze it for 10 minutes (so your shapes hold while baking).
