Almond Bonbon Cookies

These bonbons remind me of England, with a touch of America. Dip cooled cookies into one frosting or each side into different frostings. Have fun adding any kind of sprinkle toppings you like. — Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Very good cookie - I added almond flavoring to the icing to enhance the almond flavor. Will definitely make again
