Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, stir flour and baking powder together. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Add the flour and baking powder in and kneed the dough.
The dough doesn’t really stick well together and it breaks apart easily. DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH!
Roll the dough out into 1/4 inch thick. Using cookie cutters, cut them into shapes. Place the cookies on the baking sheet and freeze them for 5-7 minutes. Then bake for 10-12 minutes. Let it cool off before decorating.
