Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, whisk together all-purpose
    flour, almond flour and salt. In another
    bowl, beat butter and sugars for 2
    minutes, until fluffy. Beat in egg and
    almond extract until just combined.
    Pour in flour mixture; beat until just
    combined. Work dough briefly with
    hands and form 2 disks. Wrap in plastic

  • Heat oven to 375°. Remove a dough
    disk from refrigerator. Generously
    flour work surface. Roll to 1/8-inch
    thickness. Cut out shapes (such as
    snowmen or Christmas trees) with a
    3-inch cookie cutter; place on baking
    sheets 2 inches apart. On half the
    cookies, use a smaller cookie cutter to
    remove a different shape (such as a
    heart for snowmen or a star for trees).
    Re-roll dough as needed. Repeat with
    second dough disk.

  • Bake at 375° for 10 to 12 minutes, until
    golden. Cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Separate cookies with cutouts from
    those without. Spread a scant teaspoon
    of preserves on non-cutout cookies.
    Dust cutout cookies with confectioners'
    sugar and place on top of non-cutouts.
