This was a cookie we always had at Christmas to celebrate a Swedish tradition.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Combine butter or margarine, sugar, egg, almond extract, and salt. Cream together well. Add 1 1/4 cup sifted flour. Mix thoroughly.
Place dough in cookie press, and make long strips. Place on cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with oil.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) . Check at eight minutes. It will take at least ten minutes to cook. Bake until slightly brown. Cut into two or three inch cookies as soon as taken from the oven. If baked on an air bake cookie sheet, cooking will take a few minutes longer.
