Merry Christmas to All!

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

Sliced almonds!

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!
