Almond Sugar Cookies
This cookie recipe contains almond paste. It bakes crisp and keeps its shape, and tastes wonderful.

4 oz. pure almond paste, room temperature 1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sugar 3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups butter 1/8 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325°F.

In stand-up electric mixer at low speed, beat almond paste, sugar, butter and vanilla until light and well creamed. Gradually beat in flour and salt. Turn dough out and separate into quarters. Wrap and chill until ready to use. Roll out on barely floured board one portion of the dough. Cut out into shapes and place onto baking sheet. Bake until very pale golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
