Absolutely Almond Cut Out Cookies

Do you think of Christmas and the holiday season and love the thought of decorations, trees, presents, friends and family? It brings such great memories! But then your second thought is OMG, I have to clean my house and figure out food - there could be weeks of present wrapping and holiday baking ... gross!

I found that there are ways around some of that stress. You CAN take the easy way out! Tastefully Simple helped me with my holiday baking. You would never think that a wonderful Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix™ would also make the most amazing cookies! The dough is so versatile; you can scoop them, roll them out, cut them, slice it ... whatever you have time for. The best part is that it is so delicious. You can leave them plain, add a few sprinkles for a little extra, or, if you're willing to spend a few extra minutes, you can frost them. No matter how you do it, they're amazing! You really can't mess these cookies up. 

Here's to the simple things in life!

Absolutely Almond Cut-Out Cookies

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first three ingredients. Knead dough until it’s gathered into a smooth ball. Lightly flour a flat surface. Split amount in half. Roll out dough to approximately ⅛” - ¼” thick. Use a small amount of flour to keep dough from sticking. Using cookie cutouts, cut out dough and place cutouts on a cookie sheet. Apply sprinkles. Bake at 350° for 5-6 minutes. Cut-out dough can be used again by simply gathering it up, mixing it with unused dough and rolling out again. After continued rolling (and mixing with flour), dough may get dry. Mix with a small amount of water to get it dough back to the necessary consistency. Continue until dough is gone.

Tips and Hints

  • Use decorator frosting from the store to save you time. If you're look to make something homemade, I use this recipe and it works great:
    • 1 stick of butter
    • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
    • 2-4 Tbsp. milk
    • Food coloring
    Mix butter and sugar together with a mixer and add in vanilla. Use milk to make the frosting the consistency you like. Add food coloring to color the frosting.
  • My kids love frosting but they said these cookies were really good without (of course, they have to have sprinkles).
