Almond Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.

So easy, and so delicious. I didn't have any almond extract on hand, so I just used vanilla extract instead and used twice as much (except in the glaze- I used a lot less in the glaze because the vanilla was very strong). I had some sliced almonds on hand, so I tossed them in a pan on medium heat and shook them every couple minutes until they were toasted. I glazed, and sprinkled them on top. AMAZING! Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe :)
I don’t bake too often, but wanted to have some homemade holiday cookies around the house and boy were these a huge hit! Super easy and the components I got made me feel like a Foodnetwork Holiday Champion! ?? thanks for sharing this recipe, I will be making it many time over!

These cookies were delicious! I haven't made the glaze as they are just great without them. I prefer them to be not so sweet. I used my medium Oxo cookie scoop and got 20 cookies. I have the Wilton mega size cookie pan and was able to get 4 rows of 5 cookies on them at one time (with parchment paper). They don't spread any more than you flatten them so I'm not sure why you would need them 2 inches apart. Instead of cooking spray on the glass, I just rubbed butter on the bottom of it and dipped it in vanilla sugar to flatten each cookie. I baked mine for 7 min. and just let them cool on the pan and they were all fine.
These were REALLY good! The only adjustment I made was to add about a cup of sugar instead of 3/4 cup. These cookies are buttery, rich and sweet....and the dough is easy to work with. I baked them at 400 degrees for exactly 9 minutes and they were perfect. I haven't glazed them yet, but honestly, they are delicious without the glaze too! Either way, these cookies will be on my Christmas cookie tray!Volunteer Field Editor
Excellent, quick, and easy!!
We love these cookies. We've been known to decorate them for holidays other than Christmas and decorate them accordingly.
These cookies are much easier to make than rolled cut-out cookies but taste really good and are very pretty! They would be a nice addition to a holiday cookie tray. The almond extract makes them a little unusual and special.
These cookies have been my all time favorite ever since I first found them in Tadte of Home many years ago. My family counts on these at Christmas time. Yummy!!
My cookie dough also came out dry and hard to form balls, BUT...I put it in the microwave for 5-10 secs and Voila! Soft and pliable after stirring. 20 secs if you had it in the refrigerator. No need to use eggs or more butter. Softens up and is easy to make balls
