  4. 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  5. 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. Red and green liquid or paste food coloring
  7. Black and orange jimmies or sprinkles
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in water and extract. Gradually beat in flour and mix well. Place 1/3 cup each in two small bowls. Add red food coloring to one and green to the other; set aside.
  2. Shape remaining dough into twelve 1-in. balls and twelve 1-1/2-in. balls. Place one smaller ball above one larger ball on ungreased baking sheets; flatten slightly.
