Ingredients

1 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2/3 cup
sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 1/2 teaspoons
almond extract
1/2 teaspoon
salt
2 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
 
1/4 cup
light corn syrup
1 teaspoon
water
Decorator sugars

Directions

  1. Combine butter, 2/3 cup sugar, egg, almond extract and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F.
  4. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Press 3/4 to 1-inch cookie cutter into center of each cookie, cutting only halfway through dough.
  5. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  6. Mix corn syrup and water together in bowl until well combined. Use small brush to coat areas to be sugared and outside edge of cookie with corn syrup mixture. Hold cookie at an angle; sprinkle decorator sugar over areas brushed with corn syrup mixture. Shake excess sugar off cookie.

The dough is a little hard to work with but when done is nice and flaky nice subtle almond flavor.

Rating

Like most cut-out cookies, these are more trouble than they are worth. They looked like a good one to try, but I won't make them again.
