Yield 24 cookies

Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter soft but cold (you can make a thumbprint in it)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 teaspoons water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, with a mixer cream 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 (important!!)

  2. Roll into small 1-inch balls and flatten slightly. They should look like a thick checker. Cook for 7 minutes (they will not look done) at 400 degrees on a parchment lined pan. Cool cookies until they are just warm and place sliced almonds on top of each cookie.

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