Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in food processor, place almonds. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses until finely ground.
  • 3
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add flour and ground almonds; stir with spoon or hands until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.)
  • 4
    Shape dough into 38 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in coarse sugar. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 5
    Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 6
    In small bowl, stir powdered sugar, milk and almond extract, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown.
  • tip 2
    Look for coarse sugar in gourmet sections of supermarkets or in cake-decorating supply stores.
