Red White and Blue Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1 egg

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons red colored sugars
2 tablespoons blue colored sugars

In mixing bowl blend granulated sugar, butter, almond extract and egg with mixer. Add flour.
Divide dough in half. Put half of the cookie dough on waxed paper or plastic wrap; press into 8-inch square. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon each of the red and blue sugar. Using waxed paper to lift, roll up dough. Repeat with other half. Wrap rolls in plastic wrap and refrigerate or put in freezer until firm enough to easily cut. About an hour in the fridge a bit less in the freezer. Pre-heat oven to 375ºF. Cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
