  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened (not melted)
  • 2 tbsp butter flavored shortening
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • 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.
