1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract (OPTIONAL)
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or coat with baking spray).
In a large bowl with a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract; beat until combined.
Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl every now and again.
Roll dough into 1" balls, and roll in sugar.
Place on baking sheet, about 2" apart. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies have set.
Allow to cool.
Top with a little granulated sugar right out of the oven, frost or cover with a glaze when cooled.
