Ingredients
  • 1/2 recipe Sugar Cookie Dough, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup whole almonds, very finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons red sanding sugar
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Start with Alton's Sugar Cookie dough recipe.

  • On a work surface, knead the flour into the Sugar Cookie Dough until well combined. Add chopped almonds and almond extract and knead dough until evenly incorporated.

  • Scoop level tablespoons of dough and roll into smooth balls between the palms of your hands. Place balls about 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill for 20 minutes. Bake until set and golden on the bottom, about 12-14 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Stir the confectioner's sugar and sanding sugar together in a shallow dish.

  • While cookies are still warm, roll in sugar mixture with a fork until completely coated, gently pressing cookies into mixture to adhere the sanding sugar. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
