Santa Cookies.......

Do you have something really
special that you really really want from
the jolly old man this year?
(I love to have a nice gift certificate
from 123 Stitch) just leave a plate
of these sweet little morsels out
for the big guy!
Glazed Almond Bars
.5 cup butter
.75 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp salt
1.75 cups flour
Mix, chill for 1 to 3 hours.  Cut into strips.  Brush with milk and sprinkle with sliced almonds, gently pressing into dough.  Bake at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes, until lightly brown on bottom.  Cool and drizzle glaze over bars.  (I didn't let mine cool).  Glaze .5 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 2 to 3 tsp of milk, enough to make a nice drizzling consistency.
I'll let you know what happens!

I'm with you on the gift certificate, Liz!! The perfect gift, in my opinion. Those glazed almond bars sound delicious...have to file that recipe away for next year!

Merry Christmas!!
