Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in the almond extract. Blend in the flour to form a dough. you may have to knead by hand at the end. Take about a teaspoon of dough at a time and roll into 'S' shapes. Place cookies 1 to 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
