Oh, how I love a good cookie.  I got this recipe at a cookie exchange years ago and it has become a family favorite.  It is hard to believe but they really are better the next day!

Scandinavian Almond Cookies
½ Cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar
Combine until creamy.  Add
1 Egg
 ½ tsp. Almond extract      
Mix thoroughly and add the following dry ingredients:
1 ¾ Cup Flour
2 tsp.  Baking powder
¼ tsp.  Salt
Mix well.  Divide into 4 balls.  Form each into a 10 inch roll.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly until 2-3” wide. 
Brush with
Milk and sprinkle with
½ Cup Sliced Almonds, coarsely chopped 

Bake at 325 degree oven for 12 – 14 minutes (until edges are lightly browned.  While cookies are still warm, cut them crosswise at a diagonal into 1 inch strips.  Cool then drizzle almond icing.

Almond Icing
Stir together till a drizzling consistency:
1 Cup sifted   Powdered Sugar
¼ tsp. Almond extract
3-4 tsp. Milk

Makes 3    dozen cookie bars.

Always Delicious! 


  1. These look yummy and I can handle this simple recipe

  2. Both of your recipes look delicious! I used to make spritz cookies and haven't done so for years. This looks like something my grandchildren might like to help with! Thanks for sharing!
