1 tsp Watkins Original Vanilla
1/2 tsp Watkins Almond Extract

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp Watkins Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 400ºF. On lightly floured surface, roll dough one third at a time to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutter. If you are making sandwich cookies, use a smaller cutter or knife to cut the center out of half the cookies. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Immediately remove to wire rack to cool. Makes 5 to 6 dozen
Directions: Combine all ingredients, beat until smooth. Decorate cookies.

Spread bottom cookies with about 1/2 teaspoon of jelly or jam of your choice, cover with a cookie with the center cut out. So pretty and tasty!
