Ingredients:  
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened

Directions:
Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 350º. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
Divide dough in half. Roll each half 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured surface. (Nana's secret is to roll the cookies until they are paper thin and use a metal spatula to pick them up and put on the cookie sheet.)
Cut into desired shapes with 2- to 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Nana started making these Christmas Cookies with Katie when she was very young. As Jimmy and Danny got older, they began to help as well. However, the last few years, the Christmas Cookie Team has been just Nana and Danny - and what a great team they make.
