  • Summary

    My kids prefer these with all vanilla extract so I use 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and no almond extract. I love the flavor of the almond extract but it's up to you. If you don't use the almond extract be sure to replace it with additional vanilla extract.Spraying the counter top with the cooking spray makes clean up so much easier. I find that if I do smaller cookies or letter/number cutouts then I always cook for 7 minutes. For the bigger/normal sized cookies I cook for 8 minutes and they're perfect.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups salted butter (3 sticks) softened to cool room temperature
