Derived from and inspired by some basic sugar cookie recipes, these little almond-y flavored bites of sugary goodness make a great sweet little treat. Simple and hard to screw up.
Cream the sugars, Crisco and extract. Add the egg and milk. Mix well. Sift together the dry ingredients and mix into the sugar mixture. Refrigerate the dough for about an hour.
Roll the dough on a surface that is floured with a mixture of 2 parts flour and 1 part powdered (confectionery) sugar. Roll the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick. I used a little 2-inch heart cookie cutter from a Pampered Chef set that I have.
I used a basic egg glaze for the red color: 1 egg yolk and a teaspoon of water and a good many drops of red food dye. Some of the cookies were also adorned with red sugar crystal sprinkles and some colored jimmies.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 5-7 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the pan before removing them. Then enjoy! Be careful if you use a small cookie cutter like I did, because these are bite-sized and hence they left the bowl in handfuls.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
