3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened slightly
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon almond extract
red food coloring (the amount you’ll need with depend on what type you use)
1 cup white frosting or use pre-colored red frosting (I used Betty Crocker vanilla frosting)

OR use white or colored fondant
green food coloring
powdered sugar to dust work surface
disposable pastry bag or zip top bag
I love to use rolling pin rings (the green bands at both ends of my rolling pin) when I make cut-out cookies so I get nice evenly thick cookies.
Simply open the bag along the cut seams to expose the cookie dough. Then, cut out squares using a cookie cutter.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
