"I'm going to a basketmaker's holiday gathering. It is a potluck and I would like to bring a food item with a basketry theme. Do you have any ideas? I could use an appetizer, main course or dessert, it doesn't matter which." Thanks, PW

cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp. almond extract

2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
tsp. salt


Soften butter and mix with sugar until creamy. Add almond extract to butter and sugar mixture. Combine well. In separate bowl, mix flour and salt. Combine the contents of the two bowls and mix thoroughly. Chill dough for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 325. Form chilled dough into 1" balls. Place the balls of dough on a cool, ungreased cookie sheet. Use a basket design cookie stamp to press a design into the cookie. Lightly oil the stamp before the first use. Wipe out any excess oil with a paper towel. Dip the stamp in flour, shaking off any excess before stamping each cookie.

Bake at 325 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Watch the cookies carefully as they bake so they do not burn. Use a spatula to remove the cookies to a cooling rack. If you plan to hang the cookies as ornaments, pierce a small hole in the top of the cookie immediately after removing from the oven. Cool thoroughly before moving off the rack. Once cool, arrange them on a plate or in a basket lined with a holiday patterned cloth basket liner. Tuck a few cookies in a small basket to give as a gift or hang them on your Christmas tree.
