Day 1
Scandinavian Almond Cookies
About 2½ dozen
From: Betty Crocker Kitchens

Cookies:
1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/3 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. almond extract
3 tsp. milk
1 cup sliced almonds

Almond Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp. almond extract
5 – 6 tsp. milk
2 Tbsp. sliced almonds

1.    Heat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, flour, and extract until dough forms. Divide into 3 equal parts; place on ungreased cookie sheets. Press each into 12 x 3-inch rectangles. Note – dough will spread to about 5” so leave plenty of room between logs.
2.    Brush each rectangle with 1 tsp. of milk; sprinkle each with 1/3 cup almonds. Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; cut into 1-inch diagonal slices. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
3.    In small bowl, stir powdered sugar, ¼ tsp. almond extract and 5 – 6 tsp. milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. almonds.
