These chewy almond cut-out sugar cookies are the perfect cookie to leave out for Santa. The dough holds its shape perfectly and the flavor and texture of the almonds makes them extra fun! These cookies taste great as is, or decorated.
Sift together the all-purpose flour, the salt, and baking powder. Mix in the smashed almonds and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. About 2 Minutes.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, until combined.
Add in the vanilla and almond extracts.
While the mixer is running, carefully add in the flour combination ½ cups at a time until the dough comes together and all of your dry ingredients are used. Chill for 30 Minutes.
Preheat & Bake
Preheat the oven to 325°F
On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it is around ¼" inch thick. Cut into your desired shapes and transfer to an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 10 Minutes or until the edges just start to brown. Cool on a wire rack and decorate if desired. Repeat as necessary.
If your almond cut-out sugar cookies still look shiny when they come out of the oven, put them back in and cook for another minute or so.If you choose not to decorate the cookies, sprinkle them with granulated sugar as soon as they come out of the oven for fancier presentation.
