    Chop up the butter into chunks (room temperature) and add into the flour mixture. It is time to 'cut the butter into the flour mixture' - what does this mean do you ask? There are a few ways to do this: 1) THE FUN WAY! Using your hands, start mushing the butter and flour together until all of the butter has been intermixed the consistency of the dough is like a cornmeal; or 2): you can use a hand held mixed on a really low setting. Be careful not to over mix it.

    Now add the egg and almond extract. Mix really well until the dough comes together and it soft and smooth.

    Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Set them 2 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheets. Place an almond on top of each dough ball and press down to flatten slighty.
