Ingredients

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

 

Red, orange and yellow gel food colors

Coarse white,orange and/or yellow decorator sugars

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, milk and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into thirds; place each portion into separate bowls. Add very small amount of red gel food color to 1 portion; mix well. Add additional red gel for desired color, if necessary. Repeat with remaining dough portions and gel food colors.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape each dough into ball; flatten each ball to 1/2-inch thickness. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 2-3 hours or until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  5. STEP 5

    Working with half of each dough color (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), drop tablespoon-size pieces of dough from each color onto well-floured surface in random pattern with dough pieces touching. Roll out dough to 1/4- to 1/8-inch thickness, forming marbled design. Cut with 3-inch leaf-shaped cookie cutters.

  6. STEP 6

    Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugar. Bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.
