Learn How it Works...
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 to 3 tablespoons warm water
1 (5-ounce) can mixed nut topping
Decorator sugars, if desired
*Substitute 1 cup finely chopped toasted mixed nuts such as almonds, peanuts, cashews etc.
Combine 1 cup butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and 1 teaspoon almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half; flatten slightly. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time on lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch tree cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 6-7 minutes or just until edges begin to lightly brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon almond extract in small bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Continue beating, adding enough water for desired glazing consistency. Frost 1 cookie at a time; immediately sprinkle each with nut topping and decorator sugars, if desired.
- Mixed nut topping is available in cans in the ice cream topping section of the supermarket.
- These cookies bake very quickly and have a brown appearance due to the cinnamon. Be careful not to over bake. Check cookies at minimum baking time.
