Priscilla's Cut-Out Cookies

“This recipe was given to me a few Christmases ago by my good friend Priscilla. This is the best recipe for cut-out cookies that I've come across in all my years. It's simple, but it's delicious. Instead of almond, I'll sometimes add lemon or peppermint extract for different-flavored cookies. Cooking time includes chill time.”
