Almond Cookies

  • con-almondcookies


1 C butter

¾ C sugar

1 tsp almond extract

2 C flour

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

Sliced almonds



½ C powdered sugar

1 tsp almond extract

3 tsp water


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, blend the butter, sugar and almond extract. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture, 2 tablespoons at a time, to the butter mixture until completely combined.

Roll dough into small balls and flatten slightly. They should look like a thick checker. Bake for 7 minutes (they will not look done) on a parchment-lined pan. Cool cookies until they are just warm and place sliced almonds on top of each cookie.

For the glaze: Combine powdered sugar, almond extract and water. Drizzle a spoonful of glaze on top of the almonds and cookie. Makes 2 to 3 dozen.
