This recipe not only makes a delicious, less-sweet sugar cookie but with a little food coloring and some sprinkles and a cookie press, they turn out beautifully.


1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon almond or vanilla flavoring
2 1/2 cups flour, sifted

Mix thoroughly together butter, sugar, egg yolks and flavoring.  Work in flour with hands.  If using food coloring, divide out dough and add a few drops, blending in with a hand mixer.


Place on ungreased cookie sheet using a cookie press (don’t be afraid to put two or more colors in–the results can be quite artistic).  Bake at 400F for 6 to 9 minutes being careful not to overbake.  Remove to cookie rack or paper bag to cool.
