Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

4 to 5 teaspoons water

Sliced almonds

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. 

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all cookie ingredients in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls to 1/4 inch thick with bottom of buttered glass dipped in sugar. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Whisk all glaze ingredients except almonds together in bowl. Decorate cooled cookies with glaze and sliced almonds, as desired.

Tip #1

- If dough is too dry, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons milk.

Tip #2

- Glaze sets up quickly. Frost and decorate just a few cookies at a time.

Tip #3

Variations:
Flavored: Substitute vanilla or mint flavoring for almond extract.
Toppings: Drizzle unglazed cookies with melted chocolate or vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark). Decorate glazed cookies with chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips or decorator sugars.

This is my "fail-safe, go-to" recipe anytime I need to take cookies anywhere, especially around the holidays. Thanks for keeping it online! I first saw it in a magazine about 10 years ago & I've been making them ever since.
