  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks, room temperature)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 eggs, with the yolks and whites separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • decorative sugars of your choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Using an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar until creamy.

  3. Add the egg yolks, vanilla extract, almond extract, salt, and mix a minute or so.

  4. Add the flour gradually, and mix until well-incorporated. (Scrape the sides of the bowl, if needed).

  5. Fill the cookie press with the dough, and form the cookies according to your particular cookie press instructions. I use a nonstick baking sheet without any parchment or silicone pads.

  6. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg whites over the formed dough. 

  7. Sprinkle the dough with decorative sugar and/or sprinkles of your choice.

  8. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven at 350.

  9. Remove the cookies from the oven, and allow to cool for about 5 minutes

  10. Use a turner/ flipper to carefully remove the cookies from the baking sheet, and continue cooling completely on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
