FOUR INGREDIENT (super-easy) SHORTBREAD COOKIES
from the Isaac H. Evans

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
Dash of almond extract

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour. Roll and cut into holiday shapes just like sugar cookies but be sure to not roll these cookies too thin (leave at least 1/2" thick).

Bake at 350˚ on a lightly greased pan for approximately 12-15 minutes, until a light golden brown on top.

The fun part is decorating them; one of the captain's favorite ways to decorate them is by dipping them in chocolate but cookie icing and candy sprinkles are a great way to go also!
