Almond Cookies

Every year for Christmas, I slave in the kitchen days before to get all my cookies ready! I am going to share with you come of my favorite recipes! This was a newer one that I tried a few years ago that i found on

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp almond extract
3 tsp water
Almond slivers (optional)

Preheat over to 400. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, blend the butter, sugar, and almond extract.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powered, and salt. Add the flour mixture slowly to the butter mixture until well combined.
Roll into small balls and flatten slightly. Cook for 7 minutes (they will not look done.)
Cool cookies until they are just warm. Place sliced almonds on top of each cookie.
For the glaze:
Combine the powdered sugar, almond extract, and water. Drizzle a spoonful of glaze on top of the almonds and cookie. Enjoy!
