These rich buttery cookies have just three ingredients! They're a snap to make for a last-minute gift or when guests will be arriving on short notice. For best results, gradually stir the flour into the dough.

“After years of searching for the best sugar cookie recipe, believe me- this is it! Almond paste gives a hint of great flavor to these moist cookies with a subtle crunch.” —Daria Burcar, Rochester, Michigan
