Comments {White Chocolate Frosted Almond Sugar Cookies}

First off…

I got my shot glass from my girl Alyssa!!! I love it… isn’t it so cute???

Next, I just want to say thank you for all of the comments I’ve been getting on my blog lately!!  Each and every one makes me feel SO good!! I can’t even express it, but thanks for all the love!  Rachel wrote a blog post the other day about comments and it got me thinking, so I’m stealing this topic from you Rachel! πŸ™‚

Commenting is a very important aspect of blogging.  I love leaving comments on other people’s blogs because I know I like to know what people think of what I write.  (A.K.A. I love knowing your thoughts, guys!  If you love it, tell me.  If you hate it, tell me!) I wish I was able to reply back to comments right on my blog, but Blogger doesn’t let you do that.  I know WordPress does, though.  So I went on a search and found this!   I’m still trying to get it to work… and not succeeding.  If anyone can help me, that would be great.


–Edit— I just signed up with Disqus (dis-cuss) for commenting and I can now reply to everyone individually and keep track of all of my comments on all of your blogs. Yay!! πŸ™‚  Check it out if you find yourself having the same commenting problems as me.


Anyway, I made these cookies to take with me to meet Guy Klinzing and he liked them.  I brought them all and they were all gone by the end of the day.  They’re easy and the almond extract makes the cookie, in my opinion.  They a little crispy, but they still have a little bit of chewiness to them and adding almond extract to the frosting made it taste awesome!

  • Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Coat bottom of a glass with cooking spray; dip in sugar. Flatten cookies with prepared glass, dipping glass in sugar again as needed.
  • Bake at 400Β° for 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, almond extract and enough water to achieve glaze consistency. Tint with food coloring if desired; drizzle over cookies. Sprinkle with almonds. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
