Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter -- softened
3 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

In a large bowl combine the sugar, butter or margarine, cream cheese, salt, almond extract, vanilla and egg yolk. Blend well.
Stir in the flour and mix until well blended.
Chill the dough overnight. This is very important the dough is too sticky to roll out unless well chilled.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough 1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness, refrigerating remaining dough until ready for it.
Cut into desired shapes with lightly floured cookie cutters.
Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Leave cookies plain for frosting or brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with candy sprinkles or colored sugar.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes or until light and golden brown.
Cool cookies completely before frosting.
