3 cups 750 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1 tsp 5 mL baking powder
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
1 cup 250 mL butter, softened
1 1/4 cups 300 mL sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla
1/2 tsp 2 mL almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).  
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Stir well to blend.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together in separate large bowl of electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, vanilla and almond extract.
  4. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture. Mix well. Form dough into two balls. Wrap each in plastic wrap and chill about 3 hours for easy handling.
  5. Roll dough out, one ball at a time, on a floured surface to ¼" (6 mm) thickness. Cut into desired shapes. (If cookies are to be used as Christmas tree ornaments or as gift giving name tags, insert the large end of a toothpick through the cookie at one end and leave there during baking). Decorate with coloured sugar, nuts or candies before baking or leave plain and decorate with icing later.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden. Remove toothpick when cookies come out of the oven. Cool.
  7. When cool decorate with coloured icings, if desired. Personalize cookies with a name written in icing. Thread with colourful ribbon, yarn, or cord.
