12 Days of Cookies: Almond Shortbread Snowflakes

Nancy Burgeson heads off 2020’s 12 Days of Cookies presented by Bridgeman’s Ice Cream.  She suggests pairing her cookies with Bridgeman’s Butter Brittle Ice Cream.

Almond Shortbread Snowflakes

1 cup butter (at room temperature)
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp almond extract
2-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
coarse sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar together, add extract and flour.

On a lightly floured surface (I use Wondra flour for rolling out dough) roll dough out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

Cut with floured snowflake or cutter of your choice.

Spray cookies lightly with water and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Place cookies on parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Slide parchment off tray and cool cookies.
