Almond Melt-Aways

I decided to make some Christmas Cookies tonight for a family party we are attending.


I wanted to try my hand at recipe blogging, so here we go :)

Almond Melt-Aways

you will need:
1 1/2 C. sugar 
1 1/3 C. butter
  2 large eggs
2 tsp. almond extract ***the best part***
3 1/2 C. flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
extra sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Start with taking your butter and mixing it with the sugar.
Then add your eggs and almond extract.
^^The Challenge Butter is the best, but I mostly like it because of the pretty packaging.
 In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients.  

Roll the dough into little balls, and then roll in sugar.  The original recipe called for coarse sugar which would have been much prettier, but we are on a budget here, so I used regular. 

Bake for 4 minutes, and then flatten the cookies.  (Leave them in the oven and use the back of a spoon).
Bake for an additional 4 minutes.

Voila!  Cookies!
