Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Elegant and easy – these pretty cookies have a hint of almond and will make any cookie tray complete.
Combine butter and 1 cup powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, almond extract and salt; continue beating until mixed. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Shape dough, one-half at a time, (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) into 1-inch balls. Cut each ball in half; roll each half into 4 1/2-inch rope. Gently twist two ropes together; shape into a wreath. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack placed over waxed paper. Cool completely.
Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl; stir until smooth. Brush glaze onto cooled cookies using pastry brush; immediately sprinkle with decorations, as desired.

This became a family traditional favorite from the first time we made them. They are very pretty on cookie trays.
I really enjoyed making and decorating these cookies. They are as tasty as they are pretty.
Very good and very pretty on a cookie tray!

Every once and awhile, I have to giggle at the way recipes come and go, and then come back again. Orange & Fig Pinwheels is one of those recipes. Pinwheel cookies are now everywhere on Pinterest, as are fresh figs. Combine the two and you have one trendy recipe – fig pinwheel cookies.
