These tender treats are so cute and have a great buttery flavor. The dough is easy to work with and the cookies bake up beautifully every time.—Mary Beth Jung, Hendersonville, North Carolina

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Divide dough in half; add cocoa to one portion and mix well. Divide each portion into six pieces; shape each into a 5-in. log. Place a chocolate log and vanilla log together, pressing to form another log.
  3. Using a cookie press fitted with the disk of your choice, press dough 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. If desired, dip each cookie halfway into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; sprinkle with jimmies. Let stand until set. Yield: 9 dozen.

"I was so disappointed in this daughter and I wanted to try some cookie recipes for Christmas, so we picked this one. The taste was bland and they were very dry."

"These are a very tender cookie. The only issue I have, it only made half as many as noted. It made 52, using the same disc, and following the recipe exactly. A very tasty cookie with the almond extrac in it. :-D Will make again."
