    Directions

    1. Put butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer bowl. Beat with a mixer on low speed to blend, then increase speed to medium and beat until smooth and creamy.
    2. Add flour and salt to bowl and beat on low speed until a smooth dough forms, scraping sown sides of bowl as needed.
    3. On a work surface, place dough on a large sheet of plastic wrap. With clean hands (slightly dampened if needed to prevent sticking), shape dough into a smooth rectangular log roughly 2 inches wide, 1 1/2 inches tall, and 10 inches long. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm enough to slice neatly.
