Almond Cookie Wreaths


Mix sugar, margarine, milk, egg, vanilla and almond extract. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Divide dough into halves. Tint half with food color. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

For each wreath, shape 1 teaspoon dough from each half into 10 cm rope. For smooth, even ropes, roll back and forth on sugared surface. Place 1 green and 1 white rope side by side; press together lightly and twist. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Shape each into circle with ends meeting; press bits of candied cherries on wreath for holly berries.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake until set and very light brown, 9-12 min.

About 4- half dozen cookies.
