- ¾ cup salted butter, softened (1.5 sticks)
- ½ cup white granulated sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar

- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- ¼ cup all purpose flour
For the Strawberry dough
- 3 Tablespoons all purpose flour
- 3 Tablespoon strawberry jello powder
In a mixing bowl combine room temperature butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Mix with electric hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment on medium/high speed about 3 minutes, until light and creamy, scraping sides of bowl as needed.
Add egg, vanilla extract, and salt and mix until well combined and fluffy. Add baking soda and flour last, mixing slowly until well combined. Divide dough into three equal portions.
