To make the cookies, I used an easy cookie recipe that I had used years before. When my daughter asked the question last week, I immediately thought of this simple recipe:
1 cup of butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
2 1/2 cup flour
Cream butter and sugar and then add eggs and flavoring. Mix well. Add flour and mix well between additions. Dough will be a little sticky-but that's fine! Spoon dough into a cookie press and press onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 6 minutes. Cookies will not be brown. Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool on a rack. Makes 3 dozen.
Happy Birthday, Baby!
