|Some of the Valentines Mom and I made -|
|Perfect with a cup of tea!|
Almond Hearts (you could use any of the shapes that come with a press)
1/2 C. butter
1/4 C. sugar
2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/4 C. flour
|One of Jenna's gorgeous creations -|
Cream the butter. Gradually add in the sugar, then the egg and extract. Add the flour. Fill the press and form cookies on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375. Makes about 25.
I added a dollop of icing and sprinkles to make them more festive:
4 tabl. butter-flavored Crisco
1 C. confectioner's sugar
1-2 tabl. water
Mix together the Crisco and sugar. Add enough water until of desired consistency.
