Quick and easy almond flavored sugar cookies that are sure to make the family say "Mmmm".


  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • Non Stick Cooking Spray
  • Choice of toppings


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400F
  • 2. In a bowl of an electric mixer, add room-temperature butter and sugar. Beat for about five minutes until fluffy and light in color. Add in egg and almond extract, and mix until combined.
  • 3. In a medium-sized bowl, add all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk together until airy and mixed together.
  • 4. With the mixer on low, gently add the flour until it is all incorporated. Make sure to scrape down the sides and bottom.
  • 5. Once the dough is together, lay it out onto a lightly floured surface. If the dough is a little crumbly, simply knead together with your hands until it is formed.
  • 6. Lightly flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough. If it's too sticky, simply add a little flour to firm it up. Roll out dough until it's about 1/4-inch thick, and then dip cookie cutter in flour and cut out shapes.
  • 7. Spray a large cookie sheet or sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray, and gently lay out cookies on sheet pan, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
  • 8. Bake for about eight minutes until lightly browned, and let cool completely before you start decorating.
  • 9. To decorate, simply spread frosting onto the cookies and decorate with desired sprinkles, candies, etc.
