2 sticks butter, room temp, unsalted
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
Royal icing
Put white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and warm it in 30 second intervals, mix inbetween
While it cools, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl
Beat butter, sugar with mixer until fluffy and light- 5 minutes
Beat in the egg until smooth
Beat in melted white chocolate
Add in vanilla and almond extract
Slowly add in flour
Mix until combined
I then roll my dough into a big ball, and put it on top of saranwrap and roll it into a really long square, you can divide the dough so you have two squares
I roll them as thin as I want my cookies, then I place them on a cookie sheet and put them in the fridge to chill for 2 hours
After 2 hours, I take them out and cut them into the shapes I want
Cook for 12-15 minutes
Cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool
