Preheat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; add to butter mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
The dough will be very stiff; if necessary, blend last flour in by hand (if dough becomes too stiff, add water, a teaspoon at a time). Do not chill dough.
Divide dough into two balls. On a floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approximately 12 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch thick. Dipping cutters into flour before each use, cut out cookies.
Decorate cookies with sugars and sprinkles and bake, or bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet then decorate (see suggestions below).
