Greek Butter Cookies

Great butter cookie! We dipped some in chocolate and rolled a few in powdered sugar too.


1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar for rolling


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Blend in the flour to form a dough. you may have to knead by hand at the end. Take about a teaspoon of dough at a time and roll into balls, logs, crescent or 'S' shapes. Place cookies 1 to 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned and firm. Allow cookies to cool completely before dusting with confectioners' sugar.


*Try dipping some in chocolate and edging them in chopped walnuts.
