  1. STEP 1

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

  4. STEP 4

    Place flattened chocolate dough on top of flattened white dough, pressing firmly together. Roll and shape into 8-inch log. Repeat with remaining dough. Wrap each log in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 3 hours until firm.

  5. STEP 5

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  6. STEP 6

    Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5-7 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheets immediately.
