Ingredients
  

Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter soft, but cold
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract

  • ¼ tsp salt

Frosting

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • 2-3 tsp water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In an electric mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and almond extract. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture 2 tbsp at a time to the butter mixture until completely combined.
  • Roll into small balls and flatten slightly. Cook for 8-10 minutes (they will not look done). Let the cookies cool on the pan until they are just warm and transfer to a cooling rack.

Notes

You do not have to add the food coloring. These make great every day cookies.
