1 cup unsalted butter, softened
In batter bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugar beating until fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, and beat until smooth. Beat in vanilla and almond. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly. Place dough in a cookie press fitted with a design plate, packing it firmly and evenly. Force out onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing cookies about 1 inch apart. If kitchen is very warm and dough is soft and sticky, refrigerate until firm enough to press easily. Decorate as desired. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to racks and let cool. Store airtight. Makes about 4 dozen.
