White Almond Cookies

We always call these the anemic cookies because they are very pale looking but, they are very tasty. Post in commemoration of Rebecca and Shelah's Boston Marathon 2009 run.

1 c. of butter
3/4 c white sugar (1/4 c. for rolling)
1 egg
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 T. and 1 t. almond extract.

Cream butter, sugar, and extract. Add egg, mix well. Stir in flour. Roll into balls. Roll balls in sugar. Place on cookie sheet bake for 7-9 minutes at 375.

For festive variations you can roll them in colored sugar
you can also sub. vanilla, or lemon extract.
