|Almond Sugar Cookies|
A simple Merry Christmas to all of you in Blogland! I have been thinking of you for weeks now, but with no extra time to write until today - Christmas Day!!
Being Danish, I love anything almond; especially pure almond - the real thing! These little cookies are a favorite of mine & the family. I thought it only fitting to share the recipe with you today!
Almond Sugar Cookies
1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract - the real stuff - pure!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract - pure!
4 to 5 teaspoons water
Roll dough into 1" balls; place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Flatten to 1/4" thickness with the bottom of a buttered glass dipped in sugar. Don't push down too far!
Bake for 7 minutes at 400 degrees or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely. Frost with glaze & decorate with almonds!
Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies! Enjoy!
I hope you have all enjoyed a very special holiday with friends & family. It is the most wonderful time of the year!
Have a super New Year 2014!
