Italian Almond/amaretto (or Anisette) Cookies W/ Icing

Italian Almond Cookies w/ Icing and SprinklesCookie

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk

ICING

  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • Sprinkles

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or non-stick liners

For Cookies:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy about 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs one at a time mixing after each addition. Add almond extract.
  3. Blend flour and baking powder. Start by adding a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture then add 1 Tbsp milk. Add another third of the flour mixture and another tablespoon of milk.. Finally mix in enough of the remaining flour mixture until your dough is like a brownie batter (it should be softer than a drop cookie dough).
  4. Use a small cookie scooper to make simple round drop cookies–use wet fingers to pat any rough edges.
  5. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes–they won’t be brown but the insides will be soft and cake like.

For Icing:

  1. Mix sugar milk and extract to make a sugar glaze. Hold cookie in your hand and paint with finger–cover entire cookie with glaze and sit on a baking rack with wax paper underneath to catch any drippings. Immediately top with sprinkles before glaze dries.
  2. Allow icing to harden overnight; then store in air tight containers or freeze.

These freeze well!NOTES: You can use anisette instead of almond extract in these cookies. Substitute the almond extract to anisette extract in the cookie and cut the amount of anisette to 1/8- 1/4 tsp. anisette flavoring in the glazeThis article and recipe adapted from this site
