    03 Method
    • Step 1
      In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
    • Step 2
      In another large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined, then add flour mixture gradually until totally combined.
    • Step 3
      Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour.
    • Step 4
      When ready to roll, preheat oven to 350℉ and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out dough until 1/8” thick. Cut out shapes and transfer to prepared baking sheets. Freeze 10 minutes (so your shapes hold while baking!).
    • Step 5
      Meanwhile, make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter until smooth, then add powdered sugar and beat until no lumps remain. Add cream, almond extract, and salt and beat until combined.
    • Step 6
      Bake cookies until edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
    • Step 7
      Let cool, then frost and decorate as desired.
