When it comes to dessert, I’m a cookie gal hands down. They are perhaps the simplest dessert I have made, requiring only minutes to prepare and bake. The treat I am about to share with you is the easiest recipe you will find on this blog...and yes, its semi-homemade. ;)
Spiced Almond Cookies
(Adapted from Betty Crocker)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
For Spiced Almond Cookies you will need:
1 pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
¾ cup finely chopped almonds
¾ teaspoon ground allspice
¾ teaspoons ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir together cookie mix, almonds, allspice, ginger and cinnamon. Stir in butter, vanilla and almond extract until a soft dough forms.
Shape cookies and place a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake 12 minutes and cool for 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
Place powdered sugar in a shallow bowl and gently roll each warm cook in sugar to coat. Place back on cooling rack and let cool completely. If desired roll them once again in the sugar.
