  • Preheat oven to 350 and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In your mixer, cream sugar, butter, shortening, and salt until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg, corn syrup, vanilla and almond extract and beat until well mixed.
  • In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients.
  • Scoop (I use the cookie scoop tool) and roll into balls. Pat down balls a bit. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool until warm.
  • Make almond frosting: Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ tsp. almond extract and a few tablespoons of milk (until it's the consistency you want).
  • Drizzle frosting over warm cookies. Add sprinkles if desired.
