Directions

  1. In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium for 30 seconds. Add next three ingredients (through salt). Beat until combined, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in next four ingredients (through almond extract). Beat in flour and ground almonds. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill until dough is easy to handle (about 2 hours).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time until 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 9 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are very light brown. Remove; cool on a wire rack. If desired, glaze cookies with Royal Icing; let stand until set. If desired, tint remaining icing using food coloring and pipe designs onto cookies; let stand until set.

*Tip:

Look for meringue powder in the cake decorating aisle of hobby and craft stores.

To use Royal Icing as a glaze, stir in additional warm water, about 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until icing reaches a thin spreading consistency.
