Hi Sweets! So sorry for missing a day yesterday, I promise to make up for it at the end. The hubs and I just got home from a weekend away in Lake Placid, NY which was amazing and unfortunately left no time for baking any cookies. We spent our days touring the Olympic sites and attractions- we even rode the bobsled; it was so intense!!!
We got home a little after dinner tonight and I was super tired so wanted a quick and easy cookie to feature. These butter cookies are about as easy as it gets. You mix everything up all at once, roll the dough out into balls and bake for 10 minutes. They are simple, cute and if you use the right sprinkles, very festive!
Did anyone do any baking this weekend?
1 stick of butter
5 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup of flour
1 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients together, roll out into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. I pressed mine flat with a fork which created little dips for Christmasy sprinkles to sit in. The dough isn't very sticky, so you'll need to either press any type of sprinkle into the cookie or create ridges like I did. Bake for 10 minutes.
