  3. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extracts; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended.

  4. Divide the dough into 3 portions; wrap each tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate dough for 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled and firm enough to handle.

  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  7. Cut out cookies with a prepared cutter. Transfer with a metal spatula to the baking sheet, placing 1 inch apart. Repeat with remaining dough portions, spraying cutter with additional cooking spray as needed.

  8. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges of cookies are browned lightly. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute before removing cookies and placing on wire racks to cool completely.

  9. Use red icing to fill in the hat, leaving the tip of the hat blank.

  10. Use white icing to fill in the tip of the hat, the brim of the hat, the beard and to make 2 dots in the center of the face for the eyes.

  11. Place a red candy centered between the eyes at the top of the beard for the nose and a mini morsel on each white dot to make eyes.

  12. Top beard with whipped cream just before serving.
