Sugar Skull Cookies

I got this awesome sugar-skull patterned rolling pin.


1 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour

Filling and Decorations
Raspberry Jam
Food dye

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set it aside. In separate bowl, cream butter and sugar until well combined and smooth. Add eggs one at a time mixing well in between. Add the vanilla and almond extract. 

Mix in the flour mixture in one cup at a time and mix just until the ingredients are combined. Divide the dough into 3 discs and roll each one out on a mat. Freeze for 10-15 minutes and cut out your cookie shapes and bake 6-9 minutes. Decorate as you desire.
