Ingredients

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, divided
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

  • Line baking trays with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Beat egg in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in all but 1 Tbsp of the beaten egg. Set the saved portion aside. Add the almond extract to the butter mixture. Mix to combine.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Add to butter mixture and mix to combine.
