Almond Cookie Carrots

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl beat butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium for 1 minute or until well combined. Add eggs, sour cream, vanilla, almond extract; beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until combined. Beat in sliced almonds. Cover; chill dough 2 to 3 hours or until firm enough to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. On a lightly floured surface roll dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Using a floured knife, cut into 2- to 4-inch-long carrot shapes, dipping knife in flour between cuts as necessary. Arrange 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake 6 minutes or until edges are golden. Let cookies cool on a wire rack.
  3. For frosting: In a large bowl beat butter and salt with a mixer on medium for 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add milk until smooth. Add almond extract; beat until smooth. Tint frosting to desired shade of orange. Using a star tip or other shape, pipe frosting over cookies. Top with almond slices for carrot stems.

If using liquid food coloring, use a 3:1 ratio of yellow to red to make the frosting orange.

Delicious flavor but keep in mind the cookies puff up while baking so your cut out triangle mat not end up looking like a carrot. My suggestion: buy a carrot cookie cutter. Also, I wasn¿t so pleased with the almonds stuck into the cookie. Next time I¿ll figure out how to add green at the top.
