Learn How it Works...
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon almond extract, if desired
Food color, if desired
Decorator candies, sugars, etc, if desired
Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and egg in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, until creamy. Add milk and 1 teaspoon almond extract. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Add flour and baking powder; beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into a ball. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, water, 1 tablespoon butter, corn syrup and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract in bowl; mix until powdered sugar is moistened. Beat at medium speed until smooth, adding additional water if necessary, to reach desired glazing consistency. Tint with food color, if desired.
Glaze cooled cookies. Add decorator candies, if desired. Let stand until glaze is hardened (6 hours or overnight).
