6 Tbsp. butter
2 c. brown sugar

1/2 tsp. almond extract
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Slice them thickly to make a chewy cookie or thinly for a crispier treat. The kids loved these. And so did the dog...who got up on the table and finished the plate of a dozen cookies that got left out overnight. Sigh.

Yield: 2-3 doz. cookies

Cream butter and sugar, then beat in eggs. Add vanilla and almond extracts.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture gradually.

Shape into a roll, then wrap in plastic and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.

When you're ready for cookies, unwrap the dough. Preheat oven to 350.

Slice dough thickly (about 1/4 inch slices) for chewy cookies, or thinner for crispier cookies. Place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Dot cookies with almonds or sprinkles.

Bake at 350F for 7 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
