I got this recipe from a relief-society thing this year. These cookies are delicious and are easy to make. They take a little longer to make but are worth it! They go great with hot chocolate as an after dinner treat. Almond paste is hard to find, I prefer it in the can and at Safeway, it is near the baking chocolate or evaporated milk. These cookies are small, so double or triple the batch for a large party. I wish I had a picture to post...
Snowy Almond flavored Bonbon Cookies
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 C Softened Butter
1/3 C Powdered Sugar
1/2 t Vanilla
1/2 package Almond paste
1 C Powdered Sugar
1/2 t Almond Extract
roughly 4-5 t Milk
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2) Mix flour, butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Cut almond paste into 24 even pieces. Shape cookie dough around each piece of almond paste forming small balls.
3)Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes, or until set and bottom is golden brown.
4)Whip up almond frosting, make it on the thin side
5)Move balls to wire rack and let cool completely. Roll in almond frosting. Sprinkle top with sugar sprinkles. Let them set out so frosting forms a semi-hard shell.
