Mini almond sugar cookies are an easy and soft baked sugar cookie perfect for Holiday baking. This bakes as one big cookie on a sheet pan then just slice into mini squares!
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
5 tablespoons Crisco shortening
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Colored sprinkles + 1 tablespoon sugar for decorating
1. Heat oven to 375. In a large bowl cream together the shortening and the 3/4 cup sugar. Add in the oil, egg, milk, and almond extract and beat until light and fluffy.
2. Gradually blend in the flour, baking powder, and salt at low speed. Spread onto an ungreased baking pan. Mixture will not cover the entire pan, spread until about 1/4″ thick. Mine measured 9×10. Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon sugar and sprinkles. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then slice with a pizza cutter to the desired cookie size.
This recipe was something my mom made. She found the recipe on the bag of Pillsbury Flour.
